    Sad to read that ...

    Fair winds and following seas Mr. Dorr.
    The most important six inches on the battlefield ... is between your ears.

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

    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?

    I don't post much, but wanted to point out Robert F. Dorr and his work are getting another round of attention thanks to his investigation by the FBI as a kid-which is awesome. Count me as another one who was glad he came by here
