I have read all of Don Burgette’s books and noticed how much he respected Don Brininstool. My Father knew Don Burgette and got me started on his 4 books. When I first read the name Don Brininstool, I thought of my friend who was my bunk mate in basic training. His name was Bill Brininstool. I know he told me that his Father was a war hero and he sure got that right. Bill went off to OCS and I have always wondered what happened to him. I went on to serve in Vietnam and hope he was able to avoid that experience. Best regards to a hero that will not be forgotten.
Thank you for taking time to write me about Don Brinninstool. I met some of his kids at a memorial for Don when he passed away but do not remember their names. I knew Don for about four years, played some golf and poker with him he was just one great guy to be around. I did a one hour DVD interview with him in my home in Jackson about his time in the 101st and WW II it is very informative. I also have another man from the 101st who introduced me to Don his name is Fred Bahlau who I also have on DVD. If you want to talk about any of those men I knew Fred for over 10 yrs just email me also I have a all WW II website with some of my over 115 DVD interviews that I have done over the last 15 yrs. They are all for sale with written permission from the Veterans to sell to keep this history alive. I was told by a Marine who was several vicious battles in the Pacific that nothing is forgotten quicker than Military History. My website is Lmww2.com it is all WW II keep in touch.
