For one of our own from Martinsburg, WV:
Captain Lawrence James Jankowski, 52, U.S. Army (Retired) died 20 August 2016 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Captain Jankowski, affectionately known also as “The General” was a critical care nurse with the United States Army from 1990 until his retirement in 2014. He did a tour during the Gulf War and another in Iraq. His last duty station was at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He served this nation proudly and is the recipient of many awards and commendations.
He is survived by a large and loving family and many friends and fellow patients. He is sorely missed by all.
Captain Lawrence J. Jankowski is to be interred on the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery on 29 December 2016 at approximately 0900 hours from the JBMHH Old Post Chapel.
PGR has been invited to attend the services by his wife Nici, and we will be there to stand tall silent and proud in honor of this U.S. Army Officer, his family, friends and comrades at arms.
