Harry Morgan! There's one that went by us. Good addition, Dave. Let's hope he and the others come through.

Didn't David James Elliot from JAG win an Audie Murphy AVA Award? I believe he did. Also Sam Elliot presented an award at one of the AVA ceremonies. Was Michael Dante mentioned? He's in a picture with Pam, Terry and James at an award ceremony as well. Is his friend Perry Pitt still alive? What about Joan O'Brien?

James Gibble knew Audie & Pam when he was a little boy. His story is in the Documents section on the home page. I believe it's the last item.

David got Michael Dante's signature on the petition at the Memphis Film Festival.

Harry Morgan is 97 now. I know that last year he was signing autographs, but also read he has stopped now at his age.
Let's hope he will make an exception and sign this endorsement at least.

It looks more like a home than a place for an awards ceremony, unless it is back stage. In any case, I enjoyed the pic as I had not seen that one before.

Thanks,

Dave

Betty,
Elliot and Elliot both gt one. David James for TV and Sam for Film.
Apparently there are two Audie AVA Awards, but each in different catagories.
Thanks for the suggestion. Will see if I can get one out to each of them as well this week.

Dave
