Captain Don East has slipped the surly bonds of earth and touched the face of God
I can only think of one person that is not saddened by the passing of Captain Don East who was a beloved Chief Petty Officer and Commanding Officer. Fellow aviator and VQ skipper CDR John T. Mitchell has been waiting for Don since March of 1984 when John and his VQ crew were lost en route to Guam. I'm sure they both have some great stories to share.
