To my friend Dusty.

Dusty, I think often about you and Mac Tuttle, the two from Rollins College who gave everything in Vietnam, and always offer a prayer for you and Mac on Memorial Day. You were a great roommate at Vincent House, even though you walked around with your giant pet iguana on your shoulder that scared hell out of me, and once pointed a loaded 357 magnum at me, just for fun! You were one of a kind, Dusty, and that is meant as high compliment. Steve Combs in Orlando.

A dear friend

One of my childhood friends who was dearly loved. My husband was his roommate at Culver and we eventually named our son after him. I still am sick at heart when I think of all that was lost the day his plane went own.

Fellow Squadron Mate

I served with Dustin in both VA-35 and VA-42. I was the Senior PT in both squadrons. In VA-42 I helped train the BNs for Fleet service in the A-6. In VA-35, I did mission planning and BDA assessment, mostly with the BNs. I recall the day Dustin was killed, even 50 years later. I thought highly of Dustin. He was a favorite in our office and was a fine young Officer & Gentleman. (I was young once. Dustin is young for eternity.)
