I served in U. S. Air Force intelligence with Donald, during the Korean War. We attended the same preRussian language school at Brooks AFB in 1951. As I recall, he wanted to become a merchant marine on the Great Lakes after he left the Air Force. We worked in the same department for 3 years until we returned to civilian life. Those who served in the now declassified command that we were in were often referred to as “silent warriors, due to the secrecy. Therefore, he probably never mentioned what he actually did while helping to defend our country’s freedoms. May God bless his family upon his passing.
