MEMORIAL POSTED AT VIETNAM
VETERANS MEMORIAL FUND (www.vvmf.org)


"You are not forgotten" - Donald R. Donaldson was my First Sergeant in the 272 Military Police Company, IFFV, Nha Trang, Vietnam.

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.
