I met George when we were teenagers what a great guy we had some real good times at the Hut,I hope we meet again.Because I really miss you .JV
I know you're in heaven, Pug and I will always sigh when I think that one of the last things you did on this earth was think about sending me a birthday gift and a picture of you bowling for our afterschool children. I'm so grateful you shared your love as well as your pain with me during the accident and at the hospital, and I'll see you in heaven.
To Georges Family: George was one of the Triangle boys that went to Gar-Field H.S. and determined to make something of himself. His commitment to Family, Community and His Country where commendable. Myself and fellow school mates from Gar-Field has lost a GREAT AMERICAN. May GOD richly bless His family you have been in our prayers.
Sorry to see you go. We were teenage pals in Quantico and classmates at Gar-Field High. Always the gentleman and a brave warrior.
George, you deserved a better death than this. When we were growing up at Quantico we often speculated on a glorious military death; very sorry you didn't get yours, old friend. Vaya con Dios.
An old friend from 1960. My sincere sympathy to your wife, son, and grandchildren.
Col. Van Orden you will be sorely missed by all of us at the Holicky-Sitter Luncheon. We have come to appreciate your sardonic wit, your gentle smile and your quiet strength. Your renown with the service rifle set a standard for all of us. I pray for the repose of your soul and the healing of grief for those who hold your name, strength and laughter deep in their hearts for ever more.
