"I was privileged while stationed at Armed Forces Staff College to be one of the Admiral's drivers 8/74-8/75. I asked for his picture in uniform and he sign it as a gift to my grandmother for her 75th birthday, he asked you sure she would like that for a birthday gift? We laughed. While on assignments sitting at his house on brick row Naval Station Norfolk in the kitchen he or his aide LT Fischer would slip in while the mess cook's were preparing the meals and ask, 'have you eaten, be sure to eat... I wondered later in life if the ADM did that because of the many years he went hungry while a POW. I respected and loved him dearly. America's dear precious Admiral - Wishing you Fair Winds and Following a Seas. You will be soon in the arms of a Jesus Christ."

"I had the honor of meeting Admiral Denton and listening to him speak of his time in the POW camp at a Guidant meeting many years ago. His words have stayed with me through all these years, humbling me every time I think my life is hard. I have a personalized copy of his book which I will treasure always. America has lost a true hero. May God welcome him home with open arms."
