29 Years For These Heroes – Ranger 12**UPDATED 1609 CENTRAL**

This is a short tribute – next year will be amped up for the 30th anniversary. Today I merely present two new pictures that were sent to me this past year.

If you’re curious about what happened, click this link and read about it from last year: Bangles On The Radio, Reagan In The White House, Memorial Services Back Home.

In the meantime, I’d like to present two of the crewmembers. Gentlemen, you are always remembered.

UPDATE:

John Giorgetti has graciously provided a picture of Patrick. He’s the gentleman in the middle of the picture. I recognize those other fellows as well. It seems we were all young and handsome once upon a time. I thank God for those memories, and John for this picture. Thank you, John

Patrick is the gentleman in the center of the photo.
