I attended Lutheran Elementary School with Donald and his sister Marsha. We were a handful of black students in the entire school. I have fond memories of us commuting an hour from our homes on the NYC subway to and from school. Although Donald was younger than us by a few years, he was definitely "grown" for his age. As students, we were required to read the NY Times newspaper daily. All of us would either throw the paper away at the end of the day or leave it at school. Not Donald, he would read the newspaper on the subway all the way home - and fold it precisely the way the grown folks did. (I still to this day can't stand up and fold the NY Times). And this was not for show, Donald was reading and absorbing the current day news (and he was 8-11 yo). He was polite, witty and an all around good guy. I am so glad I had the pleasure of his and the familys' friendship for the next decades. To the Breakenridge family, my family and I offer you our sincere condolences and prayers.

My brother you were taken too soon and you will be greatly missed, but your memories will live on in my heart always.

However I take comfort in the fact that: ''Death is not a period that ends the great sentence of life, but a comma that punctuates it to more lofty significance. Death is not a blind alley that leads the human race into a state of nothingness, but an open door which leads man into life eternal." (Martin Luther King Jr.)

SFC Breakenridge,

You were always the chillest NCO I knew, tension could be up to the roof and you always managed to remind us that it would be okay. Over the years you left a legacy with many of us. My prayers go to your family and thank you for all the memories; you will be missed.

I served with SFC Breakenridge for many years and on many missions. We would always make time to check in with each other. He was a good Signaleer, Soldier, and battle buddy. I always felt some relief when I knew we would be on the same team because we worked well together and I hope he always felt the same. My heart is heavy as I feel his loss and honor his passing. I am thankful for the years of service he gave to our great nation and for having the pleasure of serving with him. To his family I wish them the strength to remember the good times and drive forward during this difficult time. Hooah SFC Breakenridge!
