  • Rest in Peace Mike. Thank you for the many years of service to this State and Country. The Delaware Army National Guard has lost one of its finest. Your dedication and commitment to the Soldiers will truly be missed. I have many memories of you from the early 80’s when we were all in 262nd Maintenance Company in Delaware City as young SGT’s. You always stood your ground throughout your entire career to do what’s right for the Soldier and the mission. Some leaders thought you were just being hard-headed at times, but I always knew the real reason, “you truly cared about the Soldier”. My prayers are with you and all of your family, Rest in Peace my friend
