    Mike has been helping veterans on our website for over a decade. He was fiercely loyal and dedicated to our veterans. Many a time we would tell old sea stories, he told me he always thought of me as his Chief and that was a honor for me.

    His dedication to providing all technical support for our Podcast will be sorely missed and the Podcast as it is today would not exist without Mike. Hours and hours of selfless dedicated work so that the podcasts would be just right for our veteran listeners.

    On a personal note he was my friend and cheered me up and made me laugh more times than I can count and I will remain grateful for that till I see him again on the other side.
