Donald Droz was a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. He was the skipper of PCF-43 which was assigned to Coastal Division Eleven. On April 12, 1969, as the Division was providing transportation and riverine assault coverage on the Duong Keo River, they were attacked by heavily-armed Viet Cong forces. 2 men, including Lt. Droz, were killed, 12 were wounded, and 3 were untouched in the attack. The PFC-43, which was loaded with explosives, exploded after all the men were recovered by Vietnamese Marines.
Lt. Droz's name is on the Viet Nam Memorial Wall, on Panel 27W Row 63.
