Will never forget Donald

Like Luke (Ed) Bayless, I was a friend of Donald's as we served together in Vietnam. I often contact his family on Memorial Day. Donald is a true American hero.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Donald Joseph Trampski, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Never Met Him

My father gave me a bracelet with SSG Trampski's name on it just prior to me joining the Army as a Military Policeman in Aug of 92. I have worn that bracelet every single day since. I never knew him but he has been with me through my entire Army service. He has been at my side through every Deployment and Duty Station. He is not forgotten!

IN REMEMBRANCE OF THIS FINE YOUNG UNITED STATES ARMY SERVICEMAN, WHO REMAINS AS BEING MISSING IN ACTION, WHOSE NAME SHALL LIVE FOREVER MORE



STAFF SERGEANT

DONALD JOSEPH TRAMPSKI


served with


BRAVO COMPANY

1st BATTALION

14th INFANTRY REGIMENT

4th INFANTRY DIVISION

" STEADFAST AND LOYAL "


Private First Class Donald Joseph Trampski was serving as a rifleman with his unit on an operation in central Pleiku Province, South Vietnam when the unit was required to cross a Montagnard bridge.

While crossing, PFC Trampski lost his footing and fell into the river below.

At the time, there was a severe rain storm in progress and the river was swollen with a rapid current.

PFC Trampski was last seen in the water, swimming about 30 yards from the bridge.

Searches were conducted 300 meters along the banks and continued for 3 weeks with no success.

Because no body was ever found for PFC Trampski, it was never known for certain whether he had perished.

The possibility existed that he was captured, and he was classified Missing In Action.

The area in which the unit was operating was far from any formal city, and, as no enemy was present at that time, it is not known if the enemy knew his fate.

PFC Donald Joseph Trampski is among nearly 2500 Americans who remain missing in Indochina.

Unlike "MIAs" from other wars, most of these men can be accounted for.





YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

NOR SHALL YOU EVER BE
