I knew Danny through my aunt Patty Calhoun - he was her boyfriend from 14 years old till about 16. He was so sweet and kind. I was 10 when he died and I have always thought of him, then a few months ago I found out that he died on my birthday, 7/11/68 was the date he died and I turned 10 that same day. Danny, you are truly missed. Rest in peace till we all meet again, love you.

I was the Company Commander of A Co, 92nd Engr Bn in 1968. Ken was my driver/RTO. He was hurt badly in a vehicle accident on the main supply route. He was returning to Long Binh after taking me to a heliport. I remember him showing me a gold and jade bracelet he had bought for a young lady. He was treated at the 24 Evac Hospital at Long Binh, but died two days after. I believe he actually died from pneumonia. I visited Ken in the hospital, but he was unresponsive due to his injuries. I also believe that Ken's personal items, the bracelet I mentioned, watch, etc were taken either at the accident site, or elsewhere. Ken was a great guy, and was well thought of by all. Over the years I have tried to find members of his family to no avail. I was only 23 at the time, and I have thought of Ken many times over the years. May he rest in peace, awaiting the next Reveille.

From his Company Commander,
Roy A. Williams
