SGT DON DEROSIER
We remember your kind ways and determination to have the best crew.
We often wonder why with two weeks left to serve you were called away. That day, August 30th, 1967, you were wounded and forever left an empty space in our hearts. Les "Red" Dietze still thinks about the times he kidded around with you about sending letters home to your girl friend. Cooper Thomas remembers all the good times he had with you in training at Fort Bliss, Texas ... the trips you made to Mexico and the crazy things young men do. The [FNGs] Cleve Lanier and Don Wolfe that made the crew of C-131-DUSTERMEN, the best there was.
Time went on after you left us, Sergeant, but we were never the same. We missed your smile, your never-ending leadership that kept us all together. The day the news came that you passed on December 3, 1967 was a sad day forever in our hearts. We salute you, Sergeant, and keep a space here in our hearts and mind for you.
