From the Photograph Album of Donald A. Warner, Jr., MMI Class of 1942

(Captain, Co. A, 22nd Infantry, 4th Division, World War II)


I am delighted to report that Captain Don Warner, Jr., ’42, is alive and well and living in South Texas! He turns 88 on May 23rd. Warner is spry and is as sharp as a tack, mentally. He sends his best to the MMI Family!

With Don’s permission, I offer the following photographs and documents from his photograph album and his alumni file here at MMI:
