I am very blessed to have called Mickey my friend. I had the honor to serve alongside Mickey as Staff Officer in the 307th Medical Battalion, 82d Airborne Division in the early 1980's. He was the consummate professional, always exuding confidence and dependability. Moreover, he brought a sense of humor to work everyday that kept me laughing. I will forever cherish these memories.

My most sincere condolences to Mickey's family.
