  • I really enjoyed the time we spent together Doug and am very sorry I did not get to see you again before you passed away. I am grateful for the opportunities to sit down with you and listen to your life and war time experiences.

    Thank you for your service to the country and to our unit. An officer and a gentleman.

    Rest in peace my friend.
