LTC Larry Rolle was the best man at my wedding when I was the commander of the 302 SOS at Luke AFB near Phoenix before it was relocated as the 71 SOS at DAVIS MONTHAN AFB near Tucson. I later became the commander of the 71 SOS and presided over the dedication of the aircraft now on static display. The crash of Pony 12 was a horrible loss for all involved. All were members of my squadron when I commanded the 302 SOS. I still miss them. I'm sure I'm not alone. I would like to thank you so much for the research you did and the dedication you showed by placing a plaque at the crash site. I hope our paths will cross some day so I can personally show my gratitude.
