Unfortunately, due to staffing issues because of COVID, there are major delays in receiving the paperwork. If anyone on here as the ability to track this down quickly, (perhaps someone on base), we'd be incredibly grateful. We have to receive the paperwork today to make this happen by Thursday.

I can be reached on my cell at (703) 304-2046 or amberschwartz7@gmail.com if you might be able to help us.

Thank you,
Amber (Don's Sister)

While I never knew him personally or interacted with him on this site from what I recall, I have enjoyed being a part of this forum for twelve years now, and have met some great people and learned and shared a lot. So, I owe that to him. My condolences to his friends and family.

Such horrible news. My sincere condolences to Don's family. Thanks for your service not only as a member of the armed forces, but as the founder of this online community. You fought for us all your life, right up to the end. Rest in peace DD

Rest in peace DD214. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He made such a huge positive mark on this world by the creation of this site and the efforts he put in. I never met him but he helped my life become a better place. Thank you DD214.
