    Sad to read that ...

    Fair winds and following seas Mr. Dorr.

    Sad to hear. Robert F. Dorr did a lot for the Air Force. I recommend to everyone who isn't familiar with him to look up some of the History Channel stuff he's done. I really enjoyed when he came around here. Some great conversations. Most importantly, he taught me that two spaces after a period is incorrect and has been since computers took over for typewriters. I still use the two spaces because of bad habits. RIP Mr. Dorr.

    Moved this over to the Air Force section. RFD probably would have wanted it there ... organization be damned

    and who could forget..."There is a rat in separate".
    But, I'm still not sure if the period goes before or after the quotation marks?

    And he'd definitely be pissed that the name in the thread reads "Bob" instead of "Robert".

    I'm waiting for an RFD marathon on The History Channel. He was on there quite a few times.
