About Don and his family
Don was severly burned (over 83% of his body)while serving our country in Iraq. On November 1, 2007, the vehicle he was driving hit an Improvised Explosive Device. He currently remains in recovery at Brooke Army Medical Center on Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, Texas. He will not be released until all wounds have closed and rehab has brought him as far as he can progress, hopefully, by the end of August.
Don is an alumni of Gowanda Central School since 2002. His wife, Crystal graduated from Forestville Central School. They have three lovely daughters.
Don received the PURPLE HEART on July 5,2008.
