Burkholder came to 7th platoon First Fast Company, USMC, right out of SOI and Security
Forces School.  He was light hearted (always making jokes).  He did well as a Marine in my
squad.  Motivating him didn't take much, it was apparent that he was always willing to work
hard.  I enjoyed having him contribute to my sqaud.  I was not aware of his service in the
Army until a friend of ours from our old Platoon had told me that he was killed in action.  I am
so sorry the the world has to carry on without his his bright spirit.  He will always be missed.
