Have Tres Hombres on vinyl. I need to play it again in Dusty's honor. Saw them twice live. Still one of the best shows I ever went to.

He never completed high school because of entering The U. S. Navy at the age of 15, he served three years during World War II, mostly aboard The USS Windsor, a large auxiliary amphibious transport. He participated in eight major invasions in the Pacific theater including: The Marshall islands, Bougainville, Hollandia, where they landed the 32nd Division from Wisconsin at Aitape New Guinea, Peleliu, Guam, the Philippine Islands and Okinawa.
UUU Windsor embarked the men and equipment of the 3d Battalion, 17th Regimental Combat Team, 7th Army Division, and departed the Hawaiian Islands on 22 January 1944, bound for the Marshall Islands as part of Task Force (TF) 52. Windsor participated in the assault landing at Kwajalein and, after the island had been secured early in February, sailed for the Ellice Islands.

Sorry for him and his frinds and family. I'm at least glad to see some of them die of old age rather than self destruction on drugs and alcohol.
