For those of us that were at the Colorado Springs reunion in
October, it was a true priviledge to have had to opportunity to
meet Sgt. Burruel
and his wife Jeanette. Among the men who loved him dearly, who re-united with him in Colorado Springs were Bruce Brown, Peter Mezey
and John Cortes. He will be missed by everyone.
