My condolences to Danny Zimmerman’s family and friends. My name is Bob Lohr and I believe I served with this Danny Zimmerman in 1968-69, with the 173rd Airborne, 2/503rd. We arrived within a week of each other and went to the field at the same time. Later he served under me in a 4.2 Platoon. He was a fun guy whom I enjoyed being with. My prayers go out to all.
