We served together

I was one of his flight instructors in Kingsville, TX. Students could select a destination for a long cross-country flight as part of their training. On a flight to Detroit area we stopped at Scott AFB and his parents drove over to go to his home for lunch. Memorable weekend.

A Fellow GMI Grad that made the ultimate sacrifice

As I reach 70, I think often of events that shape our lives. I met Dennis in '65. I never knew Dennis very well but we meet at GMI because the mail room kept mixing up our mail. Because of that, I started using my first initial in my correspondences. He made the greatest sacrifice of all for his country. I have never forgotten him and the other friends, relatives, and classmates that died in, or because, of Viet Nam. God bless them all.

Semper fi.

C. Dennis Peek
