As most of you may have seen and heard on the news, Wichita got hit fairly hard this past weekend.
A large EF-3 went through the SE and E parts of the city. The Air Refueling Wing at McConnell AFB flew the tankers to Ellsworth in South Dakota.
Spirit, Boeing IDS and Hawker Beechcraft all had damage at their facilities. A mobile home park was pretty much leveled.....
We have two of our kids and their families in Wichita. This was cause for concern. All are safe and well.

"Sign on, young man, and sail with me. The stature of our homeland is no more than the measure of ourselves. Our job is to keep her free. Our will is to keep the torch of freedom burning for all. To this solemn purpose we call on the young, the brave, the strong, and the free. Heed my call, Come to the sea. Come Sail with me." -- John Paul Jones
I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
