      Dear Sir,
 For your information, My cousin, Sgt Charles Jerry CRADY, Troop 144, 1959, was born September 07, 1941 and died September 4, 2013. He entered service from Assumption, Illinois. He joined I believe in Decatur, Illinois. The obit is wrong in that our mother's maiden name was Haynes and not Haines and his 'brother' was a half brother from his father's first marriage. If you need any other info please let me know.
 Sincerely, M Bernice Meredith

      Hi fellows,

 Great to hear from you Paul.
 Hope more and more responds and that we get more emails. It sounds like you have had an eventful life since leaving the corps. I think there were a lot in 144 from the Kansas and Missouri area. I recall the final check up on Walnut Street in Kansas City before we flew straight to San Diego when all the "fun" began. Like I said , a large number in this group was from that area. Some of you may remember me boxing at the "smoker" and I played on the MCRD football team. One of the games I really got clobbered in and remember waking up in the Balboa Naval Hospital. After the Corps I got into pro wrestling at the urgeing of Sonny Myers who was quite a star around the St. Joseph, Missouri area. After making a fool out of myself in this racket, I got into something more stable for my future. I went to work at The Kansas State Penitentiary, Lansing, Kansas. About 3 years before my retirement from the prison I bought into an old fashioned under the big top circus . After retirement from the prison I went into the circus business full time and traveled througout the Midwest. I have slowed down a bit and now do the bookings and advance marketing for 3 different shows. I presently live in Leavenworth, Kansas. I have 2 daughters and 2 grandsons. Hope to get more email from the fellows. Who knows, one of you might live up the street from me. Jerry R. Collins, E-Mail: cjerry65@gmail.com
