If Emory Russell is still around there, tell him that "PJ" said hello. Used to fly with him in the 7th MAS.

Give him and his family our best regards.

Hello, my name is: Albert A. Pjosek Most people know me as PJ. I was reading your Post Past History and read the Emory Russell has past on. Emory and I go back a long ways when he was a flight engineer on C-141s and I was a Loadmaster in the 7th MAS at Travis. Emory left Travis and was assigned to Clark on C-130s with the 374th MAW. I retired in Dec 76 and whet to live in Balibago for almost 18 years. We left the Philippine sApril 94 and Moved Moses lake, Washington State. Anyway i was deeply saddened by what I read. May He Rest In Peace. God Bless His Soul.

Hello all,
I'm a 20 year Air Force veteran who will be leaving 1 Dec for the LA union area. I don't qualify to be a.member of the VFW but look forward to meeting fellow veterans. I plan on spending 4 months in the Philippines and then see from there what happens. Any thoughts or ideas on where to stay short term is appreciated.

I can't say that I'm surprised to read that La Cantina will be closing, a good experiment that just didn't end as planned. I was dropping by for lunch with my family on Saturday's whenever possible, we'll miss the ritual.

For those who made the effort to keep La Cantina alive a well done, you did a class job.

Great chili at the cantina recently, but it caused a little heartburn and stomach gas. No sooner was I done and ended up ripping out a 30 second fart and I continued farting x2 days.

Outstanding Post History. I was saddened to read about all of our fellow Comrades who have made the final call over the years that I did not know about. I sell the patch that is part of the History Presentation and if anyone would like one please let me know. It comes in 848 AC&W and Det 6/OLF 1961 Comm Group versions. I helped design the patch with the help of my fellow veteran friend MSgt Charles Barnes USAF, Ret.
