Hankpac, From an aviation standpoint, the Boeing 737 entered service in Feb 1968, and with a foreign carrier (Lufthansa). I seriously doubt any airline would be willing to incur the cost of operating a new airframe with only one pax.

As usual, it's always a history lesson.

Thanks JAFO.

Thanks JAFO. I checked that out, too. Back to my personal intro, since Frog helped me out with the vetting of said Wannabe.
I am a retired PA, practiced emergency medicine for 25 years in Rural settings California, Oregon, and Texas. Former Mountain Rescue Paramedic Eastern Sierra Nevada (Bridgeport to State line, including working with the Marines at MWTC. What a great crew). Combat medic with 1/327 In, 101st Airborne, Tiger Force medic 1968-69. Web site, tigerforcerecon.com. Served with Fred Raymond, Jeff Paige (who went to LRRPS, and is mentioned in the third book of "Six Silent Men") Stan Parker (Stan was SOCOM, later in life), and John Gertsch. You won't run into as many old guys claiming Tiger Force in their background (as you do SEALS, or SF), but I have over 120 members who served at one time or other, and can assist in vetting anyone who claims such. We've had a few Wannabes of our own.
Thanks to the admins for accepting me, and for all the hard work involved with this site. This is a major service.

Howdy, my license number is P08062 as a Paramedic in California. There is at least 1 PA that posts here that works where you worked. He and I worked together over the years. MP18D. Hell, I even spent time as Placer MRT.

Welcome Hankpac.

It really is a small world.

JAFO, are you still in CA? If so, we need to hunt this Fall.

Hello,

Found this website while looking for overseas contract info. Four years infantry, two deployments to AFG. Started contracting in 2014, visited afg, irq, and south sudan. Currently on a WPS2 task order. Always seeking to get more knowledge from OGs.

Hey all, thanks for the approval. I didn't do anything special aside from regular service, but this looked like a great community to ask if I ever had questions. For instance, I have a particular SEAL verification request if at all possible.

I was in the Navy 6 years as an STG (out of Norfolk for 4 1/2), and completed 3 'cruises' in the 2000's. Somali pirates were... interesting.

Hello everyone,

I'm Johnell Brooks, retired professor, volunteer at Cornell University Press center.
My late husband was a military veteran. In memory of his contribution, I try to keep track of the military news and international employment as well (as he used to help with that too).
Glad to join the community.
