AKA Officer's Metal of Honor
« on: November 21, 2018, 12:27:26 pm »
 C:-)Let it be known that on this day, Jim Herring (Gos) has been awarded The "AKA Officer's Honorary Metal" for necessary assistance to AKA_Wayno's continued participation in AKA'S Numerous World Wide War activities. Be it known that on Tuesday November 20,2018 , Gos drove 1 hour by car to Wayno's home in Anacortes Washington where he arrived at 1000 . As planned, he then attacked and disasembled Wayno's "Flight Den" on the first Floor and hand carried it ,one piece at a time, to the fifth floor over a total of 24 vertical steps to the newly created SKY HIGH Flight Center Five. JIm made many disconnections, hauls, hoists and re-connections this day to complete this task, including: Computer, 27" monitor, printer, Flight components: stick, throttle, rudder petals, 2 file cabinets, 2 desks, ejection seat, seventy five pound tempered glass flooring for ejection seat, necessary audio components, and all associated accessories. He then reassembled all components and flight tested the system successfully. He did not get the Lunch (I'm sure he expected), at 1300 because it was nessessary for Wayno's  Doctor's appointment from1300 to 1430, during which time Jim kept himself successfully occupied until Wayno's return. Jim then completed the equipment transfer, assembly and successful test operations until dark at 1730. He had told his wife he would be home at 1700. At 1730 ,he called his wife and said he would be home about 1900. She laughed and jovially said don't worry his dinner would be ready for him when he got home. After another 1 hour drive in the dark, he arrived at home about 1830 after a very long day constructing The Sky High Combat Flight Center to support a friends need late in his war with life!
HooRah Jim!!! (Lunch will be forthcoming Soon!)

Aww, shucks! T'wern't nothin'. You are a good man and worthy.
Besides, it's worth every second so long as we are able to fly with you, Wayne!
That's what friends are for.

We'll do lunch on my next trip if you've the time.

Gos is a very kind man. Knew that from the first day I met him. I'm incredibly glad I met Gos at European Theater day last year. Your much appreciated Jim!
