My Dad, Paul Burkey, is featured in the book; RIPCORD Screaming Eagles Under Siege, Vietnam 1970, by Keith W. Nolan. This book vividly depicts the events in battle while my Dad was Staff Sergeant for the US Army. It also details how he courageously earned his Bronze Stars. I encourage anyone to read this book, not only to read about my Dad, but the others who so bravely fought for their country.
We have recently found out that he now has stage III lung cancer. This page is to set up to help with medical costs throughout my parents journey and to encourage lots of prayers for my Dad, in hopes that he can win his battle with cancer. In my eyes, my Dad is a hero, who fought aggressively and without hesitation for his country. My hope is that he can now use that same determination and strength to beat this disease.
Thank you to everyone who is taking the time to read about my Dad and thank you so much to everyone who makes a donation to help my parents. They mean so much to me and I am truly thankful for your generosity.
