Well, I was gonna say B for Bingo, his nickname during his flying days. <G>

I can't think of a D at the moment... but just wanted to say what is probably obvious, and we can't double anything said already in the ABCs of Sam. Nobody's done it yet, but just making sure!

... Mike. ^_^

"K" is for
-- Kevin - the pet cockroach he had in the days in the orphanage.
-- Kerouac, Jack. Al and his friends attended and partied with the legendary beat righter. His book "On The Road" changed his life.
-- Korea - being a POW in the war kept our poor Al going... he was repatriated 5 years later... but he was still free up *here*.
-- kiss (he had his share in his leap)
-- Knucklehead -- a 1948 Harley Knucklehead to be precise. It was his first car.... a bike! (as well as what he likes to call others who are jerks).
-- Kinship -- if it weren't for Al's kinship with Sam... where would Sam be???

** Ten Times -- The number of times that Al Calavicci circled the moon.

How about this? V is for Viet Nam, the country where Al was held as a prisoner of war until 1973 when he was repatriated (according to "M.I.A.")...

Although, I'm still curious about Brian's thought.

... Mike. ^_^
