Comment: Danny was a good friend of mine during 67-68; He and I flew together on many occasions and I always enjoyed flyng with him. I last saw Danny in Korea in 1971. He was a Captain station in the northern tac zone of Korea. He stopped in Taegu to refuel and we bs'd for an hour or so. I recently learned that Danny died as a result of a structural failure of a part of the drive mechanism of the helicopter he was flying. He was employed in the logging industry in Washington state. He died on 31 May 1986.
