In addition, Don meets each and every family and ensures that their vacation is perfect. Don and Elise started their humanitarian jour- ney by establishing the University of Table Rock Lake Foundation in 2003 and in 2012 changed the foundation's name to Ma- jor Dons Army where they continue to "fight cancer with fun."

Upon graduation, Don left for Field Artillery Basic Train- ing/Advanced Individual Training. He attended Sam Houston S(ate University where he was then com- missioned as a Second Lieutenant under the Early Commissioning Program in 1981.
