    Had a good time with you back in Chicago catching birds in the summer, not a care in the world then just a good time.
  • We are all blessed by your service.

    As a fellow Vietnam Vereran, it hurt me severly when I learned of Dan's death. I am sorrowful to this day. Dan was a great person, friend and good christian. If I were to pick one individual from Ferndale, Washington to serve our country in Viet Nam it would have been Danny.

    Dan was physically, mentally and emotionally strong attributes desperately needed in a war. It was a tremendous sacrifice our country experienced losing Dan Donnellan, I can only imagine the greatness this young man would have achieved in a full life. I miss you Danny and will keep you in my prayers.

    Dear PFC Daniel Paul Donnellan, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
