Following college at the University of Michigan, Donald entered the United States Army Air Corps. He served in World War II and in the Korean War as a fighter pilot. For his service, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross Medal, the Bronze Star Medal, and the Purple Heart, among others.
Don was my father in law, he flew, P-40, P-51, his favorite the P-38, in WW2, and the F-86 in Korea. The fact that he never bragged, never asked for credit, he simply did what needed to be done. Among the awards he was given, he recieved the bronze star with clusters, meaning he basically recieved three bronze stars, the Distinguished Flying Cross was the medal he was most proud of. He was a humble man that asked nothing of anyone he wasn't willing to give of himself."
