I apologise for sending this on the list, but I have tried several times, and
am unable to reply directly.
BLACKEAGLE (Mike) - Apologies, but I have tried to send this directly and
keep getting a "this address has permanent fatal errors".

I just joined Scouts-L and I haven't had much time to catch up on my digests,
but I had caught your name and was wondering if it was the same KYBLKEAGLE I
knew from AOL! Guess I got my answer! Thanks! - By the way, I'm sure you
probably don't remember, but you and I have corresponded before - when my son
was being shipped to Ft Campbell and was wondering about Scouting down there.
He has been to a couple of troop meetings, but hasn't had much time to put
into Scouting. He's doing so much training in the Army! He just got his
Expert Field Medic Badge yesterday - only one of 4 guys in the medical
platoon to ever make it on the first try. (Sorry - Mom-proud-of-son syndrome
Anyway, thanks for the tip. We thought Ft Sheridan was completely closed
down, but if there is anything there, it would be the perfect spot as it's
close to the train station (and I think the subway), and close to the new
museum and Lincoln Park Zoo. So anyway, if you wouldn't mind helping me get
to the right person there, it would be great!! We are going February 19 &
20th next year, maybe going in on Friday night the 18th.
Thanks again for your suggestions and help-
