A Brave Man

There is no doubt in my mind that Donald gave his life to save our country. I hope he had great honor in serving for his country. I am sure that he was a wonderful soldier and a familyman. Though I didn't know him, he looked and sounded like a very good gentlemen

You Believed in Me

Don...you were my guardian angel at Stephen F Austin State College during my freshman year in 1965. You signed a bank loan just so I could have money to eat when I had stupidly spent mine on wine, women and song. You were rough but fair. I came back from the Army in 1969, unscathed. The fact that you were an officer is so typical of your drive and character. Don, I never told you, but I love you and will always remember you. I am ashamed I have never contacted your folks but I still have that old bank loan note you signed and will cherish it forever.

Thank you

I was born on Aug. 8, 1969. I found this site and did a search of those who died on my birthdate in Vietnam. I was so moved to read about them. I wanted to leave a note on this page to honor this man for his sacrifice in service to our country. While my parents and friends rejoiced, his weeped. I am now 33, and realize more clearly that every birthday that I celebrate is a day of rememberance for this young soldier's family and friends. I will remember him from now on as well.
Sincerely,

Lt. Candler was a friend and fellow worker with me at Harper-Talasek in Temple, Texas. I am younger than he, and I served in RVN in 1970 as a 11F40 Recon Sergeant. Don you are missed and remembered!!!!

Juat A Friend and Bro.

Sir, I will never understand why I came back and so many didn't. You gave me swimming lessons and my first job as lifeguard at Lake Belton. I will always remember our times there.
We walked the same ground in Temple and over there, you gave all and I thank you. Walter Weddell
