The database page for Donald E Kenton

Don was a friend.

We went through 9 months of flight school together, and shipped out with the same unit to RVN in October 1967.

Every time I hear the new song "Private Malone", I think of Don as he also left his car in the States. I wonder if someone also found it.

I miss you, Don.

Your friend, Tom
