Classmate in Olney

Danny lived directly across street from me in Olney, IL. We were in the same class all the way from1st thru 6th grade.
We played together almost all the time and did a lot of stupid things.
After the 6th grade I moved to OKC. We lost contact.
It was only a few years back I learned of his fate.

I Learned That I Had Met Daniel Borah, Jr. When I Was Six

I posted a remembrance on March 21, 2005. At the time I did not recall meeting Daniel Borah. I was reminded later by a late aunt who knew Daniel that I had met him at the age of six. I evidently was very impressed about meeting a naval aviator. As a young adult my grandmother, Waneta Nichols, shared the story of Daniel with me. She must have assumed that I recalled meeting him as a young boy. As I look back on the memories she shared with me, I now recognize at the age of 58 what sparked my desire in serving in the Navy. My uncles and father had all served in the Army. My father went on to serve in the Air Force and retired from the Air Force in 1980. I joined the Army in 1980 to fly helicopters. I ended up in the Army’s JAG Corps before getting if the Army in 1990 (long story). I had always been fascinated with the Navy. I had almost joined the Navy in 1980. In 1991, I joined the Navy Reserves and served until my retirement in 2006. Looking back on my life and the memories of what my grandmother shared with me about Daniel, I realize that his service in the Navy and for our country inspired me to serve in the Navy Reserves in JAG. I shall never forget Daniel V. Borah, Jr. , his service to our country, his short life, and anguish that his parents and lovely sister took to their graves. MY God bless Daniel’s, his parents, and his sister’s souls. And may God continue to bless our fallen and current service members.

Bracelet

I wore your bracelet for years when in high school. It is 20 years later and I still think of you every Memorial Day (and other days). Thank you.
