  After having been shot down while flying the F-4 Phantom on a combat mission in Vietnam in 1969 I was rescued by the Air Force Jolly Greens. Dennis Palmer was the PJ on that mission. Dennis and I met for the first time since that event, in August of 2006 in Colorado while I was vacationing there with my wife at the M Lazy C Ranch.
