RIP Donald Burnham AKA Oatmeal

Postby Russ on Mon Apr 05, 2004 5:55 pm

Burnham was a BM to DS striker. I believe he served on the England before coming to the USS Horne. He worked pretty much link, despite being a quad zero. Sometime in 1989 after I left the Horne, he was discharged and committed suicide..

A lot of folks caused him grief, but those that got to really know him would consider him a friend..
