I got a call last Thursday from the long-time editor of the Scottsbluff Star-Herald newspaper, Steve Frederick. Steve nearly retired recently but decided to stay on to visit with, write about and photograph the things he enjoys, including people of the Panhandle and much of the natural history of the region.
For some reason Steve wanted to do a story on the ranch, and I was happy to answer some questions and show him around.
Here's a link to the story:
It was time well spent and I enjoyed the outing. I got some nice local comments too, and those are always appreciated.
One big bonus was a blog comment and an email from a fellow who I served with back in the glory days. I was surprised to find that a CVW-8 alumnus lives just down (well, up) the road a piece. Shouldn't have been surprised, I guess. Everyone knows that the best sailors were all raised at least 1,000 miles from the sea!
So here's to you, Devin, a little wikimedia commons Fast Eagle action from Desert Storm. Those were the days!
And some Victory and Fast Eagle love from "slightly before" DS.
