A great guy passed away last week. Mike Donovan was a close friend from our Highbridge days. In fact, we considered ourselves brothers. Mike was one of those guys you could always depend on in both the good times and bad times. Mike and I played together ( sports and other Bronx games ), worked together in the local A&P and drank a few beers together ( few defined as a great many ). In September of 1967, we joined the Marines together ( certainly not one of our smartest decisions ). After training , Mike was assigned to the 26th Marines as a machine gunner. Lucky Mike had the distinction of toting a heavy M-60 machine gun and its belts of ammo around the jungles of Vietnam. Mike served with distinction for the entire 13 month tour.
We grew apart as we went our separate ways raising our families and pursuing our careers. In the last few years, I tried reaching out to Mike as many of his friends did but to no avail. This fact in no way diminishes my memories and love for this man.
Please join me in remembering Mike and in a prayer that this brave Marine is indeed walking on Heavens scene.
