A "Just Do'.....for Colonel Donald J. M. Blakeslee....may our good Lord let him be at peace.

Once again, as aforementioned, the best has gone.......

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/12/AR2008101202095.html

I got a call in the North Woods of Minnesota yesterday to provide a photo....the rest was done by the skilled pen of Joe of the Washington Post. Rushed home to make deadline for the Monday release.

I know "Grandpa Don" will kick my ass at the Gates. But, so be it.....the world has to know.

As mentioned in a Korean War movie..."where do we find such men?

RIP Don, and thank you.
