Dave Lovewell remembers Dannie...

Dannie Bird was my neighbor.  I remember him well.


Dannie Leon Bird was born on December 30th, 1947 in Red Oak, Iowa. In 1958, his
father (Wayne) and two sisters (Pamela and Lana) moved to a farm southeast of
Webber in Jewell County, Kansas. Dannie graduated from Mankato High School in
1967. During his high school days he was a member of the football team. Dannie
joined the United States Army in March of 1968 and was sent for duty in Vietnam
in September of that year. SP-4 Dannie Bird lost his life for his country on January
14, 1969 from an enemy gunshot wound in Vietnam.
