Final Mission of PFC Donald D. Layton

Donald D. Layton entered the service January 26, 1970. He received his basic training at Ft. Lewis, Washington. On June 18, 1970, only two weeks after being married, Donald was sent to Chu Lai, Vietnam as a Private First Class in Company C, 5th Battalion, 46th Infantry Division, 198th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. On July 30, 1970, PFC Layton was wounded in action. According to his commanding officer, Donald’s unit was moving to its night defensive positions in the Nui Day Tham Mountains, approximately seven miles southwest of Tam Ky City, in Quang Tri Province, Republic of Vietnam. At 5:50 PM, Donald was seriously wounded when a concealed enemy explosive device was detonated. Donald was immediately evacuated by helicopter to the 91st Evacuation Hospital at Chu Lai. However, due to the seriousness of his wounds and despite every possible effort by skilled medical personnel, Donald passed away on August 4, 1970 at 1:45 PM. [Taken from sdvietnamwarmemorial.com]
