Our 53rd wedding Anniversary today!

Marlene and I met in 1952, when I was in flight school at Malden Air Base, Missouri. It was a blind date at Dexter, Missouri, seventeen miles north of the base.. I could see good in those days, and I liked what I saw! Obviously, Marlene must have been the “blind” one.

Marlene Wagner and I were engaged June 16th, 1953 at Webb Air Force Base, Big Spring, Texas - on the day I graduated from Aviation Cadets and received my Air Force pilot wings and commission as a 20 years old second Lieutenant. We were married August 30th at Valdosta, Georgia, nearby Moody Air Force Base where I was checking out in the F94C Starfire jet interceptor.

We’ve never thought of divorce, but I suspect Marlene may have considered homicide on more than one occasion.
