Special Notice: 2115

Dear Golden Eagles,

I sent out NOTAM 13-2015 informing you that Honorary Member, CAPT Robert E. “Doc” Mitchell, USN (Ret) made his Last Take-Off on August 4, 2015 in Pensacola, FL, at the age of 97. CAPT Robert “Ras” Rasmussen, Central Flight Leader, just informed me that Doc’s Memorial Service is scheduled for 12:30 PM, Friday October 9, 2015, at the Naval Chapel aboard NAS Pensacola, FL, with internment to follow at Barrancas National Cemetery. Doc’s daughter Anne and son-in-law Al Hargis escorted Doc to many of The Golden Eagle past reunions including the last reunion in May 2015. Doc was a truly distinguished medical researcher and scholar and a saint to all of the POW’s he attended after they returned to the USA.
