Remember Don White? He is the reserve airman who was honored for saving two lives after a car wreck on Highway 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim.
The Seattle Mariners also picked up on White’s heroism and honored him at a recent home game at Safeco Field. I e-mailed Don about it, and here’s what he said:
They had the wrong date in the paper. I was there on the 1st of April, Mariners day to salute the military. At the end of the ceremony and national anthem, I carried the game ball out to the pitchers mound and placed it there. They showed the picture you published and shot footage of me while I was walking. They announced the rescue event and said some kind words to honor me for the award of the Airman’s Medal. They gave me and my family 8 seats in the Terrace Club to sit and enjoy the game. They also lavished my family with souvenirs and kindness. They have great hospitality.
Good job, M’s.
