Rememberin' our Dino's beloved boypallie Dino Martin Jr.

Hey pallies, likes I am so truly sorry that I did not get this Dino-grammed to you yesterday, but gotta 'fess up that I was still confused 'bout the date of death of our Dino's beloved boypallie Dino Jr. (the Dean Martin Timeline Site listed it as March 24).

It was on that fateful day 21 March 1987 that Captain Dino Jr., while pilotin' a Guard F-4 Phantom fighter jet for the California Air National Guard, crashed the plane in California's San Bernardino Mountains during a snowstorm. Dino Jr. and his Weapons System Officer, Ramon Ortiz, we both killed in the crash.

As we all know, our beloved Dino never ever truly recovered from the death of his beloved boypallie and namesake Dino Martin Jr.

Below is a picture of Dino Jr.'s gravesite and a bit of information on Dino Jr. and the location of the grave. We thanks the pad Seeing Stars for this picture and information. (To goes there, as usual, just click on the tagg of this Dino-prose.)

Throughout this comin' Dino-week, looks for some tribs honorin' our Dino's beloved boypallie Dino Martin Jr. Dino-saddened, DMP

The Grave of Dean Martin Jr.

Dino, the son of Dean Martin, part of the 60's pop band "Dino, Desi, and Billy." An Air Force Captain, he was killed when his plane crashed into a mountain; buried at the huge military National Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. His grace is against the south fence bordering Wilshire Blvd, in Section 419, grave P-28.

Dino Jr's death was a real tragedy.

He is buried in a military cemeter nearly across the street from his dad.

Yes, I have visited both graves to pay my respects.

Hey pallie, indeed Miss AOW, the saddest blow that our beloved Dino ever had struck in his life....what a beautiful tribute to you had made to our beloved Dino and his beloved boypallie Dino Jr. Hopes someday that I will be able to make that same Dino-pilgrimage to honor our great man and his namesake....
