James,

You still at Washburn H.S.? If so, I am just a few blocks south of your location, OK about 10 blocks. I am working out of the Minneapolis Police Warehouse at 6024 Harriet Ave, just a block east of the Bauchmans Garden Center on 60th and Lyndale.  I am there Mon-Fri from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., counting down to my retirement date in July 2012. Maybe we can get together sometime and talk about Ft Allen, as I think we were down there at the same time....got to run. Bye
