    Donnie and I were the same age and attended the same schools together from the 7th grade to the 11th grade at which time I transferred to Ripon High. I know Donnie well, he was one of the guys. We all hung out together on occasion and shared many life’s experience’s. I too joined the Marines in June of 1966 and after training was sent to Vietnam. I finished my tour and extended for another 8 months. I was in the process of rotating back to the states and was at the main PX in Da Nang when I bumped into Donnie. He was new incountry and he looked it. Strange how you can tell. We talked, not so much about old times but about the present. He was a good man and a good Marine.

    Although we never met personally, I want to thank you Donnie Howard Russell, for your courageous and valiant service, faithful contribution, and your most holy sacrifice given to this great country of ours!

    Your Spirit is alive--and strong, therefore Marine, you shall never be forgotten, nor has your death been in vain!

    Again, thank you Sergeant D.H. Russell, for a job well done!
