Dorian Halverson, John Rose and I joined the Naval Air on the "Buddy" program 1 week after graduation in 1964. We went to Boot Camp in Mephis,Tennessee then went our Separate ways. John stayed in the Mephis School, Dorian in Parachute school in New Jersey and I went to Electonics School in Jacksonville, Florida. I remember when Dorian as an undercover cop was shot and killed and I spoke to John months before he passed as Diabetes took him a little at a time. I still remember them from boot camp 52 years later. We had good times.

Dorian and Andy Joy use to hang out down at Brown's Bay and I enjoyed talking to both of them. They were both sweet and had nice smiles. When I heard that Dorian had been killed in the line of duty I felt so sick to my stomach. I held my husband and kids a little tighter than usual knowing that his family had lost a great person in an instant. So sorry.
