1.) Chuck "Sugar Bear" Castillo "asleep" after a party at Bruce Weagle and Joe Morrell's place in Genton 1971. "Sugarbear" had a short celebration with his victory over Okrei in a contest they routinely held.
2.) Joe Morell at his house, proposing to his sweet young thing 1971. Lilly, from the Duke Club. "Cool Hand" Larson sitting next to her, must be tired of hearing Morrell blowing all his smoke.

1.) This shot was taken while Dawg Flight was doing some work at the orphanage in 1971. Left to right: Kevin "Jeep" Coyle, Scott Heister, and Roman "OK" Okrei. Okrei decides, now that the hard work is done, how about a little TDY to Aunt Ruby's?
2.) Sgt. Okrei at the Leper Colony 1971. Several Dawgs did some work around the place for a few days. Actually, the setting was beautiful. ...Forgot to mention, shortly after this trip Okrei lost a few toes and fingers, Sugarbear lost his lan-jow, and McAtee lost his personality...
3.) Jim "Fizzies" Haverstock 1971. Not sure of the location.....he's either at the orphanage celebrating his slaying of a rat, or the guy holding the rat in the shovel is actually a waiter at Ho-Jo's, letting Fizzies pick out his dinner.

2.) Sugar Bear's girl Mei in Jintan trying to get away from him.

4.) Tom Lippert's wedding July 1972 in his Kentucky hometown. Left to right: Jim "Fizzies" Haverstock, Phil "Vogeletti" Vogel, Tom "Lips" Lippert, Roman "OK" Okrei, and Chuck "Sugarbear" Castillo (CA). I think Lippert was having a hard time giving up his roommate, Okrei.
