Not sure what to say?

Doug Sanders was a great friend, stick buddy in flight school, best man at my wedding. Donna and I are just found out of his passing, and deeply sorrowed with his passing. Our prayers are with the Dawn and his children.

Love and prayers to this family. I haven't seen Doug in many many years but I think about all of you often. I was a childhood friend and spent many days at the Sanders home. I always remember Doug being very successful in the military and he served our country so proud. My thoughts and prayers are with all of this family.

Doug made the world a better place, and contributed to Army Personnel Recovery in ways that will be a part of History. It was an Honor to work with and learn from Doug in Army PR.

Doug was a good friend and mentor to me in PR. He helped me in many ways throughout my career while at SOUTHCOM, AFRICOM, and EUCOM. I'm thankful to have known him and will miss his southern accent and humor! We've lost a Champion, RIP Doug, I know you are up there in Heaven telling God he needs a ROCK Drill!

Doug was a mentor, teacher, and leader in Savannah,GA, 1/75th Ranger Battalion (1983-1986). One of the few who have left memories of a lifetime.

This world possesses a precious few people with the talent, character, and charisma of Doug Sanders. What a privilege and pleasure it was for all of us to have known such a fantastic person. Gone from us far too soon, but surely still doing great things until we meet again. Thanks for all you've done Doug and we salute you for a life well lived!

Rest in peace my friend. RLTW

My friend, and champion of the Warrant Officer CorpsW.O.L.F pack forever. You are missed, but your accomplishments and mentorship are not forgotten.

My Deepest Sympathy and Condolences to the Family. Doug was a friend and Team mate of mine many years ago as we grew up together in Toccoa,Ga. I am certain that you are all proud of his many positive contributions in the service of our Country.
