OCTOBER 2005 REPORT by Charles Brecheisen

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

All for now. Please contact me with any questions or comments.

Best Regards To All......Charles
