I am just learning that this wonderful leader has passed away. He will truly be missed. Maj Brinkman was the backbone of our JROTC program. He kept me motivated and help mold me into the person I am today. Wow...my heart is heavy to learn of this so late. Tracy Walton-King c/o 1992

My condolences to the family and friends of a great man, an excellent teacher, and a life coach. I remember he asked me what did I want to be and I was a confused teen. He introduce me into JROTC and he kept and motivated me there until I was enlisted into the U.S. Army. Everything he drilled and coached me on lead to a excellent military career until retirement. He was a great man and definitely an Officer. May he rest in Peace

I am Allen Brinkman II, the proud son of Maj Allen R Brinkman. I can never tell you all enough how thankful we are for these heart warming tributes. We intend to let these posts tell the wonderful story of what a great teacher, father, friend, husband and solider he was to his 7 young grandchildren. Seeing these posts we are humbled and more importantly reaffirmed our thoughts about this special man. He will forever be in our prayers and we will strive to live the life he would have intended us to. He died with this quote next to his bed. He tried to live by it. As we will try as well

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.
