Final Mission of PFC Donald J. Callison

LCPL William R. Burnett, PFC Donald J. Callison, PFC Antonio Hernandez-Soto, and PFC John L. Strickland served with L Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. On January 11, 1967, they comprised a four-man daytime observation post on Hill 22, two miles southeast of the Tuy Loan Bridge in Quang Nam Province, RVN. At approximately 2:00 PM, their position was attacked by an estimated squad or larger size enemy force. The four Marines were killed in the engagement and the enemy made off with their individual weapons and a PRC-25 radio. A reaction force from L Company pursued the attackers but contact could not be regained. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

A friend from the distant past.

With Veteran's Day 2014 upon us, I want Donny's family to know that there are people in the world that will never forget the sacrifice their son Donny made for his country. And even though I was pretty young and many years have passed since my family met the Callison Family on Burly St. in Orange, not a year has gone by that I haven't thought about them even more so on Veteran's Day.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.
