Hope everything is ok over there. I will try to get some time and read all the news at the Lancers page ! Happy to know the good news from Dennis also.
Finally we celebrate our dinner the 21st of May. Unfortunately it was a terrible day. Weather was awful and 8 members were unable to reach the Army base because of a flood. 2 of the members phoned us during dinner while on service with the Huey assisting civilians on another flood in Santa Fe province, north from Buenos Aires.
We were a few, but we had a very nice time together and 5 hours talking about flying and living with the Huey, remembrances of hard experiences and also a moment for a toast to our veterans. Everybody was enthusiastic and loved the picture you sent to me, so we took a picture giving our salute to the Lancers and all veterans of the 101st. Also showed the Lancer patch and CCN to my friends. It was great!

I am so tired, so weary, I must stop, and
I must rest. I can not go on. As my weapon falls to the damp earth, I drop to the ground
and stretch out. As I lay on my back staring up at the night sky, the stars seem brighter
than I have ever before seen them. I hear the sound of the insects, and the trickle of
water from somewhere near, all the night sounds seem so clear and have a pleasing sound
that soothes and relaxes me. I feel a gentle breeze caressing and cooling my hot sweaty
My Comrades are standing all around, looking down at me with such sadness on their faces. I can not seem to understand, is something wrong? Can they not see the beautiful stars; can they not listen and enjoy nature's night song? I do not understand, but I can not seem to tell them. No matter, they are moving on with their funny hats, and their sad painted faces that seem so out of place here. They start off down the dark, damp trail, taking the little sacks they carry on their backs and the weapons they carry as if an extenuation of their arms. They must be in an awful hurry, for I can no longer see or hear them. However I can still hear the gentle sounds, and oh those beautiful stars. They seem so near, so bright, so comforting, I must stay just a little longer, then I will catch up to my friends.
My bright stars are fading to black, and the beautiful sounds of the night are growing dim in my ears. I am so very tired, all I want is to close my eyes and go to sleep, but something is wrong, my eyes will not close, I can not blink. My stars are gone, and all is silent. The gentle breeze is still there, but I wish it would stop, for I am getting very, very cold. Colder than I could have ever imaged.
Suddenly a soft whisper reaches my ears, telling me all will be OK, and the terror that was starting to grip me is gone and a calmness settles within me. Standing above me is my dad; he smiles and kneels at my side. He reaches over and gently closes my eyes with a loving touch I had not felt sense his death, and once again I am warm, and all is well. My Comrades will have to go on without me, for now I understand, and I know I will never travel from this place.
From Juan Souto of the Argentine Army. Two of our fine old Lancer ladies are still flying high in the army of Argentina.
