I wanted to let the community know that Paul VonDrak, whom I believe was Pvon on this forum passed into eternal rest on October 4, 2022

He was a great friend to my father Ray Kling Sr. who passed last year. I imagine today they are together in a collectors paradise.

Paul was a genuinely good guy, we used to talk for (what seemed like) hours at various military shows, especially the Akron MAPS show that Scot Dennis began some years back. I’ll never forget that cache of Purple Hearts he always had with him! RIP, Pvon.

Hard to believe, he was too young. I hope he finds peace.

Very sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was always helpful and was a great promoter of the hobby.

Paul was also a GDC forum moderator recently who tried to improve this foruma and bring it back to some semblance of its former glory.....
