WF-4.JPGCannoneers at LZ St GeorgeMessage from fellow Redleg Rick Ericksen: Nate: Fantastic, I even recognized some of the guys from my Gun Section. Jon/Kip Hansen, Steve Esona (AKA Pineapple), Wayne Wolf, who left to go out as a RTO later and was awarded a Bronze Star and a Silver Star for service above and beyond. I wish we could find him. He was from Philadelphia, PA. Also Cuckoo Mike, he’s the one of the pictures with the dark shades on. He was always buzzed, he was from California. This is a great story which brings us all back together one again. "A" Battery, The Mighty Ninth, 1969-70. We will always be a Band of Brothers eternally.
