Death of Col. Jim Sabow

Post by NorthAmericanguy » November 18th, 2010, 4:57 am

(IRVINE, Calif.) - In early 1991, something happened at the El Toro Marine air base that was so bad, so shameful, that it will not go away. It's the highly controversial death of Marine Colonel James Sabow. A fighter pilot, a hero of the Vietnam War, a man considered by those who knew him, to be 'general material'.

First and foremost, Jim Sabow was the last man who would have ever contemplated suicide. He made it through 220 missions as a fighter pilot in Vietnam and had risen far in rank. The only officers who ever criticized him were almost certainly the same ones involved in his demise.

I live about 10 minuets from the former El Toro AFB. The video's description of the site is outdated. Here's the current planned use for the site:




The park is still work in progress (pending $$ funding), but the giant hot air balloon is up and running. If anyone is in LA/OC area, feel free to drop by the park. Balloon rides are free, paid for by local tax payers (me). Great for dates. You can take Laguna Canyon Road down to Laguna Beach afterwards.
