Pity he passed away.  Of course, he wasn't the only one to do the Dawn Breakers show, but he was probably one of the first ones, and the most recognizable ones, outside of Pat Sajak.   :'(

A loss that we, as a society, will begin to feel ever keener as time wears on.  That generation, which includes all the countries that participated and not just the United States, is beginning to age out and when it does, we will all be the poorer.  They never got the positive recognition that their fellows in other conflicts prior and since have gotten (but more than Korea), even though they endured the same relative hardships.

Godspeed to him and his fellows of that era.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                              Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                                One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could
