    I just wanted say that this man was a great influence in my life even though it just for a very short period in my career. He was a good guy I miss Mr. Dang!

    Very sad to see in today’s paper that Garon had passed. I worked with Garon on several occasions throughout the last 25+ years at USSTRATCOM. He was always very professional and helpful. I retired 14 months ago and was unaware of Garon’s illness. I hope he passed peacefully. Prayers and thoughts for him and his family. I will be on a sailboat to Hawaii soon for several weeks and will surely have Garon on my mind. Take Care &God Bless

    Garon was a good friend and mentor. I enjoyed having him as my boss at the 20th Intelligence Squadons where we battled the AIA takeover after SAC went away. Garon always had a great sense of humor and more common sense than most. My condolences to you Gerry and the entire Dang family.
