Dengler getting rasberries at his wedding

Be advised that the last photo under Spad Images, Vietnam era, Lt Dieter Dengler, with caption which states "Dengler getting rasberries at his wedding etc." is not in fact Denglers wedding. It's the gent on the lefts wedding, Norman Lessard. Dieter is located 6th from right. I'll be seeing Dieter and Norm plus other VA-145 guys from the 65-67 era for a reunion next month. Take care. Spads Forever. Bob Herrmann
