If that area brought you into the world, RC then I think it was possibly one of the best places in the world.  Smile

Fairchid.  I don't know where the name came from, but being as it is an Airforce Base, I can only guess it was the name of a semi-famous military person or politician.  It is one of the only tanker bases left in the US.

Ehrling Berquit Hospital, on Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue, Nebraska.  Its basically a suburb of Omaha.

I was born in Ormand Beach, Florida.  Most modern maps and Google listing-related sites claim there is no such place.  My guess is that it was absorbed into greater Daytona Beach at some point.  I've seen pictures of me growing up there & our house & yard, etc., but we moved to Virginia when I was 2, and I have no memory of Ormand Beach whatever.  We drove back through when I was 9 or 10, and I recall Mom pointing the house out to me -- swimming-pool green concrete block construction (My Dad was Navy).

Nothing strange about the name of the town, where I was born. Bremerton, Washington. Named after the man who founded the town, William Bremer. What may be strange is why he settled there, or why would a German settle in an area that was almost entirely Norwegian?

hmmm...my birth town or town of origin is in Nashville, Tn. nothing special about that other than its obvious musical heritage. Oh yeah, the hospital I was born in was torn down a little while after I was born and is scheduled to be rebuilt in the following years...interesting how long it takes for someone to decide to rebuild an old hospital.

North Tonawanda.  It's Iroquois (most likely the Seneca dialect) for "North place of swiftly-flowing water."  The neighboring towns are the Town of Tonawanda and the City of Tonawanda. 


I was born in Erie County Hospital in Buffalo, just south of North Tonawanda, while it's nice to visit the relatives once in a while I actually prefer living in La-La Land, California. Mainly because events like the one described on the shirt don't happen here.

Lebanon Hospital in the Bronx,NYC. I think Bronx is an Indian word for 'big sh!thole".

Why is it always The Bronx? It isn't The Brooklyn. And has anybody ever seen one Bronk?

Actually, I kinda know Lebanon Hospital, if it's the same place (would it also be called Bronx-Lebanon?). My grandpa's last illness was there.

And believe it or not, I've found myself in the Bronx a lot lately, in a section called Riverdale which is pretty nice. I suspect it's a little different from the part you're talking about.

In answer to the question, I was born in Syracuse, NY. Kind of in the middle of the state, not too far from Lake Ontario (one of the Great Lakes) and also near the somewhat famous Finger Lakes. Old glacier country. Glaciers carved out the fingers of the Finger Lakes. Pretty country in many ways, lots of beautiful rivers and lakes. Syracuse managed to poison their own lake, Onondaga. The local Onondaga tribe was one of the Six Nations which you may have heard of: Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, Seneca, Cayuga, Tuscarora (together called the Iroquois).

The area is also famous for apples, especially the Cortland. You can keep your "Delicious" apples, I'll take a Cortland any day.

The area of the Bronx I was born is near between Fordum and Pelham Parkway...about 3 blocks from Poe Park!

Ypsilanti, MI.  That's pronounced ipp-sill-ANTE, not yip-sill-ante.  It's named after a local Civil War hero.
