We met Doug and Jannet when they joined GWRRA Chapter D2 in Howell, MI. Doug liked to joke with me about turtle soup. But motorcycles and ice cream and dinner runs and also rallies what kept us connected. Sending Hugs to Jannet and the family.

I first met Doug at FT. McCoy Wisconsin as he was an 88M Instructor and I was a Student in August of 1997. Little did I know God had a plan down the road for us.
In July of 2001 I transferred to a new unit being stood up in Saginaw Michigan.
Doug got assigned sometime later in 2002 I think, we attended several schools and overseas training together along with a extended deployment through the largest surge of equipment and troops since World War II.
When we got back in 2005 that summer they disbanded the 251st and we went our separate ways.
Then we both ended up in 6th Battalion, 100th Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 94th Division for about 2 years and I got promoted out and he retired sometime after I left.
I SALUTE (Retired) SFC DOUGLAS BOWMAN MY BATTLE BUDDY!

Shelly and I met Doug at Williamston pickleball. He was always the life of the party. Never heard a discouraging word from him. We will miss him dearly and our prayers are with him and his family.

This is Henry Bradychok. Doug and I served together for several years in the Army.
I always enjoyed Doug's company. He always had a story to tell, usually about dancing.
I remember he was a husband, father, and brother to all his family I offer my condolences.
