An Appeal From J.C. Wheeler

18 December 2015

Hello folks,

I know there are at least a couple thousand of you know/knew me and I have a request that I sincerely hope you can help me with. As you know, I started The EC-47 History Site in 1997 and have literally put many thousands of hours that I have personally put into it in an effort to preserve not only Our Mission History but the friendships and TRUE stories of the experiences we each and all had a part in. Some may be mission related and some may only be of other experiences we had both on and off duty.

Now don't think this means anything derogatory or downgrading but true memories of things we were a part of in our tour of duty with the EC-47 Mission. Myself, I have said for the past 48 years that the EC-47 Mission in which I was a part of in 1966/67 was the best year of my twenty year career and will repeat that for the rest of my life. 

As you may or may not know, in August of 2014 I had to turn over the site to Tom Nurre and Joe Martin as my memory was failing fast. They seem to be doing a great job but as you know Help is always welcome so, PLEASE, write up some of your memorial experiences and send them in for addition to the site. I am so serious about this, I have been checking for new stories on a daily basis for about a year now. 

Thanks So Much, 

J.C. Wheeler
