Paul Includes this note regarding his service with these men:

We all went PCS to Bob Weaver/Data Reduction Cheyenne. I'd love to know any info on Wayne Paige...we were roommates in Cheyenne. I was sent to Barksdale after Thompson. Wayne went after me. Thompson returned to Cheyenne Data Reduction after two TDYs in SEA. He married the First Shirt's daughter at Base Chapel in 1973. On return to Cheyenne, I asked Col. Heineger for Gravity. Paige went to Barksdale after I did, completed his 2 TDY's and was stationed in Colorado when he returned. I visited him w/ his Thai wife in Monrovia, CA April '77. I last heard of Wayne was when he moved back to Cheyenne after his wife was deported as an undesirable alien. He married a Cheyenne girl and they had a daughter. I lost contact with him in the early 80's and would love to know where he is now. He was good friends with Donna, data reduction civilian, who key punched Astro Survey data...god did we really do this?
