Fateful Day, decision changes...

As noted in another posting, Donnie lost his life when he requested during Operation Orange that he change helos with another Marine on April 2, 1966. The other Marine that he asked to exchange helos as they were boarding was my brother, Quentin R. (Q.R.) Walsh, another combat engineer.
The result doomed Donnie and put my brother on a different helo, plus gave him 54 more years to live. Q.R. passed away February 9, 2020 at age 73 in Denton, MD. During that time, he graduated from college and reentered the Marines as an officer.
When Q.R. passed, he was greatly mourned by his lifelong community of Denton (pop., 4,400). The theme of his memorial service was “Country, Friends and Community.”
Q.R. never forgot the decision made by Donnie. We took him to see Donnie’s name on the Vietnam Wall. Ironically, we discovered that Donnie was buried in his mother’s hometown (village) of Oxford, MD about a one-half hour drive from Denton, MD.
Q.R. and I immediately visited Donnie’s grave and Q.R. placed a flag and Marine Corps flag holder on Donnie’s grave. I now change the American flag when it becomes worn.
Q.R. always thought of Donnie and remembered that fateful day in April, 1966.
