Final Mission of LTC Donald B. Schroeder

LTC Donald B. Schroeder was the commander of 2nd Battalion, 39th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division. On February 13, 1969, Schroeder was in his Command & Control helicopter directing the insertion of one of his companies in the marshy western section of Dinh Tuong Province, RVN, when he spotted two unarmed suspects in the open near the hamlet of Ap My Long (1), eight miles north of Vinh Long. He ordered his helicopter to land, and he and his assistant operations officer, a captain, moved out to capture them. They were fired on by another group of Viet Cong (VC) and both officers were hit. Schroeder sustained a wound in the left side of the back and the captain took two rounds in the legs and another in the hand. Both men were flown to the U.S. military hospital in Vinh Long. Schroeder was dead on arrival; the captain survived. Helicopter gunships reacting to the report spotted four VC with weapons in the same area and attacked, killing all four.

Great 36! Trusted him. Would follow him anywhere. Always had your back. Could learn well. For example, had his first ever gin drink when I got there.
