The West Palm Beach VA Medical Center honored World War II veteran, Don M’Sadoques
November 9th of this year. Over the past months, he has crocheted 120 blankets for fellow veterans living at the medical center.

At a young age, Don has had a talent for weaving, crocheting,
and caring for others. At age 21, he enlisted into the U.S. Navy Seabees and served until 1945.

The following are those who personally know Don and felt is necessary to speak about his undying generosity and service to others.

“Don is a gentle soul and a friend to all. A natural leader who encourages everyone to attend game nights and always willing to teach those who didn’t know how to play the games. You can’t help but feel love for Don.” – Bonnie Covaleskie

“Don is the best friend anyone could have. His organizational skills and good deeds he does for all his friends and neighbors cannot be surpassed. He is a loving friend to all.” – Bernie Diamond

“Just think, a member of the Greatest Generation, of whom there are far too few today. Don grew up poor, left home young, joined the Navy Seabees and was one of the many brave ones who helped allow the generations after him to enjoy the freedom they have today. An honest, dependable man whose word was his bond and a humble and kind soul whom we are proud to say is our friend.” – Larry and Peggy Killeen

  1. Such a kind and caring person. He deserves this wonderful tribute. We need more people like Don in this world.

  2. Don is a dear friend to everyone that he meets. Besides all of the above things that have been said about Don,
    he has many other talents, including cooking as one of them. We have all enjoyed the many wonderful dinners, pancake breakfasts and delicious cookies that he has prepared for all of us through the years. He thinks of everyone first before himself. If someone ever needs help, he is the first one there. If you are blessed to know Don, you have a true friend.

  3. Don is the most selfless person I have ever known. He is pretty sharp at most any card game too. He rates triple A in my book.
