    What a surprise to stumble upon this moving picture and the good smiling face of Chuck Sweeney !
    I’m now a 61 years old french doctor, living close to Phalsbourg Air base, where General Charles W. Sweeney was commanding officer of the 102 TFW F-86H Sabres ( 101 TFS, 131 TFS, 138 TFS “Boys from Syracuse” ), flown from Logan to Phalsbourg AFB, Moselle, France, during the Second Berlin Crisis in 1961-62.
    I was then a kid, hanging along the fences of the base with my father and brother after school .
    ( The base is now the largest helicopter base in France, home of the 1er Régiment d’Hélicoptères de Combat )
    Good old memories ! …
