Comments: In one of the reunion pages they have my father, Donald Fisher, listed with the middle initial as "R" this is incorrect. It is "S" His name is Donald S. Fisher. Dad passed away at a very young age. He retired from the service at the end of Korea and died in 1956. Please correct the information. Thank you, Karen D.(Fisher)Davis
