temporal-index: The Galactic Council recognized our claim to this world. The sacrifice of thousands has left a trail of destruction behind us, like a path across the galaxy… …to Higaara, our Homeworld. So much destruction, so many lives lost for this place, a place of wonder to those who only knew the sands of Kharak.
Ray Charles and his trumpet section in 1975 (f.l.t.r.: Jack Evans, Bob Coassin, Jeff Conrad, Phil Guilbeau, Johnny Coles), in Fort Knox, KY. Home in Virginia, Johnny C was chopping wood when a splinter flew up and went into his eye, which had to be replaced with a glass version. After healing from that he came back to the band, extending the trumpet section to 5 men for a while. Photo: coll. Jeff Conrad.
