Comments: I am looking for any further information on an article I found of my Grandfather Robert V. Rasko "Bob". He was a member of a team of pilots that indoctrinated senior pilots and maintenance personnel in the performance of the Skyray. He was under team leader, E. Hammet. and others were- Robert I. Kasten, and Albert J. Weil. I have also seen patches of his that said "Night Hecklers". Any Information from anyone who knew him or of the night hecklers would be wonderful. He also served 3 years as a pilot in WWII. Brian

Comments: I have been a military aviation historian / writer for over 40 years. This has resulted in my having numerous books and articles published. You can get on line and go to either www.amazon.com or www.google.com and where they ask for "search", type in Warren Thompson. It'll show you some of the things I have written in the past few years. Currently, I am writing a book on F4U Corsair operations in the Korean War. I would like to hear from anyone that served in any of the detachments during this period.

Comments: I'm looking for people who knew my father, Cmdr. Albert George
Fenley, USNavy from 1942-1958. You can see more about him at
http://web.mac.com/ljfenley/iWeb/AGFenley/Introduction.html
Here's the beginning of a letter he sent to the families of all men on
board the USS Walton at the end of the Korean War:
October 18, 1953
Dear Friend,
The Armistice in Korea has brought an end to the actual hostilities
there and has paved the way for political conferences which, we hope,
will bring lasting peace to this portion of the globe. Since the armistice,
you have probably been wondering, why must my son, husband, or
loved ones stay so far from home when there is no war? I would like to
take this opportunity to attempt an answer to that question.
As you know, an armistice is not a peace treaty; but, instead, just an
agreement to cease fighting while attempts are made to reach a
settlement which will end the argument and lead to peace and We still
have a job to do, and we cannot leave this area until the job is done or
until someone else takes our place in that job.
Meanwhile, we have to combat the boredom which naturally arises
during long days and nights at sea.....
