Dave attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas for a short period of time, selecting Liberal Arts as his major, before entering the Navy.

The following reference letter (below) from G.R. Luker, Captain, U.S.N., was written to Dave’s parents in 1955, praising his efficiency and performance – finishing first in his class.

NOTE:  The following recommendation letter was one of several written for Dave’s benefit by Charles F. Baldwin, LT, USN, Assistant Maintenance Officer. Mr. Baldwin was a Navy pilot. ANYONE who has any information about this man is asked to please email Dave. He would like to get in contact with him, if possible or find out what happened to him.  Any information would be appreciated.
