As a comrade in arms who was an upperclassman when Mike was a cadet, I fondly remember him and his leadership prowess. Mike, it is with deep gratitude we are remembering you and all the others who served and died in times of war so that we may enjoy the Freedom and Liberties that make the United States of America great.
