San Bernardino has 11 sister cities..Tachikawa is the oldest and strongest of the relationships, and predates Sister Cities International, Inc. It was formed because both San Bernardino and Tachikawa had United States Air Force Bases..USS San Bernardino (LST-1189) was the 11th of twenty Newport-class tank landing ships built for the United States Navy in the late 1960s and early 1970s..San Bernardino earned one battle star for service in the Vietnam War...
elluva lotta work Alien Dreamtime..We know a tremendous amount about what is going on in the heart of the atom, but we know absolutely nothing about the nature of the mind... was quoting the Bible, Revelations..It's true, you are a good woman.. Then again, you may be the antichrist..Hell, I ain't never even heard of anything like that..Maybe poker's just not your game...
