I guess I unrecusing myself, at least as far as establishing certain facts of the record go. Now I'm curious.
If you can't investigate someone close you aren't an investigator. I don't see a problem you are to anal and honest to hide anything good or bad.

I won't hide anything for sure. In this case I was just being anal about appearances, and then realized it wasn't necessary.
I bet you say that to all the girls.

Any word from the AFB, or update on the investigation?

So far I have been unable to find any organization (or individual) that tracked ammy boxing back that far.

I will be checking in with my last source tonight. If it goes like all others have, there is no written proof of the statements made by Demile. That does not mean they are false, just that the air force has no record of base fights.

He says he was the Air Force HW boxing champion I would think that would mean the entire Air Force.
I'm not having any luck finding anyone to talk to from either of the two bases he would have been posted on in Alaska.
His website hasn't responded to any questions I have asked.

I met with my last possible lead last night and no luck.

I got a return email from Mr. Demile.
"Wow, talk about the past. It was over 50 years ago. I have trouble
remembering 20 years ago. All I remember was most of my fights were in
Fairbanks and they were not only with the Air Force but with the army that
was attached to our base. The championship bouts for the different
divisions took place in Anchorage. Most of the fights took play during
the winter, which was long and cold. Most of us who boxed in our unit did
so to keep from having to work on the flightline which was often 50 or 60
below zero. The fights were refered to as "smokers" and were often only
three rounds at two minutes a round. We would often fought two or three
times in one day depending on how many competitors there were. It sounded
like I was a good fighter, but to tell the truth the guys I fought were
not that good. They were goldbricks like me who did not want to go
outside into the cold. The good fighters were in the Navy and Marines,
which we never had to fight. Since I was brought up in an Orphanage I
liked to fight. I still have a Neanderthal mentality when it comes to
fighting and it was what allowed me to survive, not only in the ring, but
in the street. My memory is vague on those years, but I know they were a
lot of fun."

Doesn't really answer the question if he was "The" Air Force HW champion or not but it seems more likely he was "A" Air Force HW champion.
Perhaps less Bullshido and more embellishment than anything else. Not too sure where the line is drawn.
