My wife, Irene. The guest is Sam Hubbard, retired USN, with F-100F time. Looking forward to the  banquet. Undergoing Chemo treatment for colon cancer,  survivor of WWII ,Korea, and Vietnam Nam. Kind of touch and go but God willing, I will be there. How about Les Leavoy, we deployed to Vietnam Nam together. Any word on whether or not he will make it? Thanking you in advance for your efforts.
