Frank, I would love to let you use the photos, but unfortunately I do not own them the rights to them. They are the property of the AFD photographer who was kind enough to email them to me because I happened to be involved with the incident in question. Sorry.

Hey Frank,

Thanks for your comment on my blog post regarding the Indy VES video. I don't know Capt. Van Sant but have heard great things since posting the blog and a similar post on Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. See you in Indy?

Thanks again Brother,

Hey stud muffin...

Thanks for the kind words about our book in the letter to the editor. I just watched your vid a few weeks ago and am telling everyone I come in contact with how good it is.

I'm in Orlando right now, but will try and buzz you when I get back to Seattle next week.

If you need to get ahold of me sooner, give me a ring at 425-238-2928.

You are doing tremendous work brother...
