  • Final Mission of CAPT Donald V. McGregor

    Posted on 5/1/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal (Posthumously) to Donald Vernon McGregor (0-74381), Captain (Infantry), United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while engaged in military operations against an armed enemy on 13 August 1963. Captain McGregor demonstrated sound judgment, fortitude, and professional competence as an infantry unit advisor to the 51st Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, Army of the Republic of Vietnam. When a lead company of Vietnamese forces received hostile gun fire from ambush during a routine battalion operation, Captain McGregor disregarded his own personal safety, proceeded to the forward area, and advised the leading company commander in the most effective tactics and maneuvers to achieve military objectives. His courageous action, personal example, and dedicated devotion to duty inspired the Vietnamese officers and men to greater efforts and assured the success of the mission. Throughout the entire day of combat operations, he rendered invaluable assistance, advice and encouragement to his Vietnamese comrades until he was mortally wounded. Captain McGregor's conspicuous gallantry is in the highest traditions of the United States Army and reflects great credit upon himself and the military service.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/16/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear Captain Donald Vernon McGregor, 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
