"You are not
forgotten" - Donald R. Donaldson was my First Sergeant in the 272
Military Police Company, IFFV, Nha Trang, Vietnam.
FOR DONALD ROBERT DONALDSON
On March 10, 1970, he was killed by one of our own troops, a
disgruntled PFC who shot and killed First Sergeant Donaldson and our
Company Commander, Cpt. Carrol Spragins. The PFC then killed himself.
Two outstanding men cut down in the prime of their lives, not by the
enemy, but by an act of hatred.
You are not forgotten.
