I remember "Tish" well. He was always in the field with us. He is pictured in the photo below on the left. I took this photo before going out with the VTR to blow a disabled track. Before the track was to be destroyed, he was to remove whatever commo stuf was salvagable. I think back to those missions when I manned the .50 Cal sitting up in the VTR like a big target! Image
