Good work,God bless,cb.
Born and raised in the canal zone, graduated class of 1975 Balboa high school.
Nice work Bill, great site. It takes me back.
France Field vets? My father was a sergeant in the Army Air Corp. stationed there at the start of WWII. I'd like to correspond with anyone else who might have been there at that time. I am interested in what life was like etc. My father died 25 years ago - I'd love to learn more of the kind of life he experienced there at that time. Thanks. My girl friend is Panamanian so I have a double interest in the "Zone". Thanks, Ted Lapekas (my father's name also)
