I have been looking for Margene for a number of years. Remember growing up with her and her brothers Tom and Gilbert on Cedar Street at Blytheville AFB. I am sorry I missed her, but am happy to see that she continued to be the lively girl I remember in life. You are not forgotten Margene...until we meet again...

We served together at Fasotragrulant in Virginia Beach. She was a lovely, sweet young lady.
