We (Doug's former teammates) and Doug's brother Jason (an O in the Marine Corp) are working towards funding a memorial with a bronze statue of Doug in his hometown of Concrete, WA. If you ever wanted to thank a hero who paid the ultimate sacrifice for your freedom, here's your chance. The links below are to the funding site and to Doug's memorial website. Check them out.

For all you non-SF types, Doug was the guy you wanted next to you, whether you were in a firefight or out having drinks. For the other QP's reading this, Doug was the quintessential team guy and a one-of-a-kind type of cat. Enough said.

Like I said, check out the links above, and pass them on to your own circles of friends and coworkers, use "the facebook" or "the twitter" or whatever the heck is "trending" these days! ;-D

Thanks,

RS

Funds sent and thanks for the heads up. Doug was a fellow team mate of mine.
