  1. I worked with Dean at the Arng Operating activity Center in Edgewood Md. I also worked with
    him in Churchville Md for Golden Graphics.


  2. I was visiting Old Sac Town in 2007 when I wandered into the Military Museum & saw Dean dabbing some paint on the Canvas Mural mentioned above. A very worthy work & I'm sure other visitors to the Museum will be pleased to see Dean's work. !!


  3. I knew a Dean Gleisberg in the Air Force at Clark Air Force Base that liked to paint. If that is you I would like to hear from you.
