THANK YOU TO Dan28 for the updated information regarding Mr. Donaldson's resting place, as well as the photos - it is greatly appreciated.

Robert D. Donaldson's tour began on December 13th, 1965; he was killed January 31st, 1966 in South Vietnam, a hostile ground casualty of small arms fire.

His body was recovered.

There is notation that Mr. Donaldson was survived by his wife and at least one child; I would be happy to transfer to transfer this page to any of his relatives, upon request.

Mr. Donaldson is also listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, Panel 04E, Line 122.

This page is being placed online, on what would have been Mr. Donaldson's 69th birthday.

"These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead." ~Robert G. Ingersoll

Sir, RIP.
