Because I'd been using another Soldier's flight gear exclusively for the past month, the person in charge of that sort of thing in the Lift Company notified me that I needed to sign a hand receipt for the gear.
At the same time, they made me a name tape for the helmet I was using, which identifies the wearer when the person's identity can't be otherwise determined (as when the darker eye shield is down during the day, for example).
When I got my helmet back, the name they'd given me was "Chappy."
I really felt as though I were part of the team.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
