Greetings Altair Shipmates. Here is your monthly report for October 2005.
ON A SAD NOTE.....John McDaniel reports that Billy Jordan, Norfolk, VA passed away in October. Billy served twice aboard the Altair, 1956-1958 and 1966-1968 and was a SK1. Our condolances to the Jordan family.
FINANCIAL.....The beginning October balance was $914.37 with no income and expenses of $72.30 leaving a balance of $842.07. Postage, plastic photo sheets and an Altair plaque were the expenses. I bought the Altair plaque on ebay and it came from a base bowling alley storage closet at the Mayport Naval Station Florida. The Altair "special fund" remains the same.
SHIPMATES.....Please welcome aboard Joe T. Reeves. Joe was a LT and a co-pilot on the Altair's chopper in 1964. Joe lives in Mississippi and you can visit his website at http://www.joesue.com
All for now. Please contact me with any questions or comments.
Best Regards To All......Charles
