An old friend

I had the pleasure of knowing Dennis in basic training and Infantry OCS. I like to remember him as a wonderful and giving representative of our generation. He lived up to OCS standard, "best of the best". Rest in peace.

Thank You

Dennis Burke gave his own life so that we may live in freedom. His life had hardly begun. You lived in Woonsocket, I wonder if you ever came to Burrillville? I can't imagine becoming a math teacher like you were, let alone one in Somalia. Thank You for your sacrifice on our behalf.

A memorial

A memorial
In hopes of perserving, the memory of my fellow Rhode Islanders killed in Vietnam I came across Dennis's article in an old copy of the PRovidence Journal. Dennis was the son of Rymond J. and Patricia Burke of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. He graduated from Mounty Saint Charles Academy, 1960, Providence College 1964. He also served as a math teacher in Somalia with the Peace Corps for twenty-two months and joined the Army in July 1966. I would like to think that I have a little bit of Dennis inside of me for he seems to have always been one to volunteer and try to make this world a better place to live in. Lt. Burke died in a mine explosion, less then two months after arrriving in Vietnam.l He gave the ultimate price to make this world a better place, and that was his life. I just wanted people to know that we remember Dennis and his family's sacrifice and I just wante to say thanks and salute them for their contribution.
