Mike Donatelli

Mike passed away yesterday during the filming of a Discovery Channel military show in California.

He was a friend, a super SF soldier, and had a promising career after retirement from SF. Mike was mike3one on socnet.

He will be missed. RIP My Brother.

Mike was a good friend of mine and served as both the junior and senior engineer on my team (I was the WO). Just heard this and sorry to hear about it. Sucks in the worst way.

Mike was a good dude. I had the pleasure of working with him on a few occasions.

Rest easy, brother. See you at the ORP.

I got the message early this morning from a friend at Bragg. Mikey was a stand up guy, excellent friend and we had a riot playing soccer together in PR. He will be sorely missed. RIP my brother.

Unhappy

This is very sad news. When I was a squad leader at 1st Batt he was a member of my squad.

RIP Brother

Damn. If I'm thinking of the same Donatelli he was a young E-6 when he arrived to C/1/7. Good hard charging guy.

RIP Mike.

Sorry typo. I meant C/2/7. I was in C/1/7 when Mike was probably not yet in high school.
