Name: Sgt Bob Brennan
City/Country: Huntington Beach, Ca.
Comments: My dad was part of the 512th at Bentwaters and also at Sembach Germany and met my mom while at Bentwaters. He always told me that his time in the 512th were some of the best of his life. I corresponded with the board August of 2003 letting them know of my dad's untimely passing 7 August, 2003. I know he was planning on going to the reunion with my mom. Unless something goes wrong, I am going to try to take his place at the reunion if it is ok with the members of the association. I have several of the old patches and had one copied at a Kinko's copy center and had it printed onto a t-shirt (cost approx $12.00) on the front and back and now proudly wear it and dad's original squadron baseball cap when I can. I would enjoy corresponding with anyone in the group who would like to.
All the best in 2004, Bob Brennan Sgt, CA SMR
