Farewell Donald Burgett - 101st Airborne


 


Well another veteran friend has passed on. He died last evening at 6 PM, after a long and wonderful life. 


I'm pleased to say I got to meet up with him several times, including having the wonderful opportunity to spend a couple of weekends at he and Twyla's home here in Michigan. Also went to several 101st Airborne meetings in Farmington Hills, MI, where he, Don Straith, and George Kosimaki, (among others) were in attendance. 


Rest in peace, my friend!

Thanks for posting Marion. I have not read his book but will do so now. 


Farewell Mr. Burgett, and thank you for your service to our country.
