Local 848 Gets Letters

C-130 vertical assembly crew is great

I would like to thank leadership for their support, by fighting to keep the C-130 in Dallas. I also take this opportunity to congratulate the C-130 vertical assembly crew. The company gave us a mismanaged mess that we took ownership of and gave them quality, schedule, and cost; unfortunately it was not enough to overcome corporate politics. I am proud to have worked with all of you and look forward to our next challenge.

In Solidarity,
John Kursteiner
C-130 Vertical Lead


You put out a good paper

You consistently put out a quality newsletter. It's nicely done and the content is top-notch. You have a great mix of local news and national issues and your photos always look clear. I hope you will enter it in the 2005 LUPA awards contest this year. Stay tuned for more information on the contest, brother. And keep up the good work.

Thank you Local 848

I came across your article about raising money for local 1921 in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. I want to thank your membership very much for the money you raised. Our hall was heavly damaged from the storm. Many many members' homes were destroyed.(some homes were underwater for 20 plus days). Are are rebuilding and slowly returning to normal.
God bless you for your help.

Please forward to all riders

Randy Hobbs, the owner of Full Boar Cycles would like to pass the following information on to you, his loyal customers. Randy Hobbs' son Trey and some friends were riding Trey's dirtbike on March 8, 2006 when Justin Marshall (age 14) lost control and hit a mailbox then a telephone pole. He sustained multiple injuries including head trauma, lacerations and broken bones; he remains in a coma. He is in critical, but stable condition on the ICU unit at John Peter Smith Hospital.
Full Boar Cycles will be holding a fundraiser for the Marshall family on March 26,2006, from 1-5pm. Activities will include a motorcyce ride that will pass by Justin's hospital room, a carnival for all ages, silent auction, raffle for a trip to South Padre Island, food, fun, prizes, and much more.

See for more details.

Please help this family by participating in some fashion. Come ride with us, play at our carnival, bid and take home one of many auction items, or maybe even a trip to the beach.

Our customers are some of the greatest people that we know. The motorcycle community as a whole always impresses me with their generosity of time and resources; we are proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of people.

Please visit the website dedicated to Justin's recovery. It includes daily updates on his condition, pictures, and information on the Fundraiser/Ride. Keep him in your prayers and come out on Sunday to have some fun and help his family.

Thankfully yours, The Hobbs Family and Full Boar Cycles Staff

[Justin's Dad is Mike Marshall, a Vought employee on Globalhawk program. Due to a tragedy in my own family, I received this message very late and I apologize -- Gene]
