My cousin Sharon Jackson Peterson married Dennis & I was about 10 years younger than him. To this day I consider Dennis as one of my lives most important people as he taught me so much in such a short period of time. He taught me how to drive a car, ride & build a motorcycle, scuba dive & surf. I remember he took me on base & showed me the copter he flew! i will always love & respect this man!

Memories

I attended High School with Dennis. It was a tight knit community, a typical
'Happy Days' town. Dennis was a leader, well thought of and liked. His picture here is exactly how he always was. A big smile.

Many of us followed his MIA status. A very sad story that I am glad finally came with closure to his family. You will ever know the many lives he touched.

LT. Dennis Peterson

They were operating off the Connie TAD from the Hornet. His crew chief, Dave Chatterton was killed the day before and I wound up being his body escort. At the time, I was an ETN2, ship's company on the Connie and Dave and the other enlisted were assigned to my berthing area. Dave and I lived a couple of houses from each other in Imperial Beach so because I knew his wife, I was chosen to take his remains back to Michigan.

I remember how heartbroken LT Peterson was when he asked me to pack up Dave's gear.
