I served with Duane as a young Lt. myself with Co F 425 Inf. He was a great guy and always quick to smile. Never had a bad word about anyone. He was extremely knowledgeable with the radio and always willing to teach. I am so sorry for your loss.

I enjoyed many years with Duane. I was his Platoon Sergeant in Co. F 425 INF and later he became my Luitenant. We worked well together during both relationships. Heaven has gained a great man.
