Post Remains ID’d of missing Vietnam vet from Monroe County

Quote:
The remains of three U.S. soldiers, including one from Carleton, Mich., who was missing in action from the Vietnam War, have been identified, the Department of Defense announced today.

Army Staff Sgt. Melvin Dye of Carleton in Monroe County was identified along with Sgt. 1st Class Douglas Glover of Cortland, N.Y., and Staff Sgt. Robert Griffith of Hapeville, Ga. They were returned to their families for burial with full military honors, officials said.

The three were aboard a UH-IH Iroquois helicopter in February 1968 when it was shot down by enemy fire in Laos, officials said. The men were attempting to take a long-range reconnaissance patrol in the mountains of Attapu Province. Three other men survived the crash and were rescued. Three Vietnamese Montagnards did not survive.

Welcome Home Don Shue

Closure for family of Vietnam soldier missing for 41 years

Written by David Whisenant

CONCORD (WBTV) - Sergeant First Class Donald Shue was laid to rest Sunday, after being listed as Missing In Action for 42 years.

Shue was killed on a secret mission to Laos in 1969. His remains were uncovered last year and were returned home Saturday.

It began with a miles-long procession of Rolling Thunder and Patriot Guard riders that took the body from Charlotte to Concord.

"I know God's healing us in bringing him home," Shue's sister, Peggy Hinson told WBTV. "I feel like I'm beginning to heal, I've been hurt so losing him."

It's healing that has come at a price. All the years of wishing, worrying, and wondering were all wrapped up in a bittersweet ceremony shared by a family and an entire community.

See video on the following website:

Don Shue Bless your brave soul.

I have no problem reading about these events. But when I watch any video of them the "tears" flow. So sad!

Rest brother, rest and feel the love and gratitude you so richly deserve.

Donnie was thirty miles inside Laos when they got hit. Brown, Wald and Shue were all injured and it was only four of the six indig. troops that escaped. These guys were all CCN brothers. These were all great guys, well respected and liked.

Soldier's body finally home from Vietnam

After lines were redrawn, the area where Shue, Brown and Wald were KIA, finally came under Vietnam's control.
The U.S. State Dept were able to send a recovery team in to locate the bodies.

It's a shame it took this long to get him home.

Thousands fill streets for return of soldier’s body
Sunday, May 01, 2011 12:00 AM
CONCORD — You can only speculate about the last moments of a Vietnam soldier killed in action. Imagine the choking clouds of dust followed by a heavy pattering of rain, those adrenaline-filled heartbeats of a soldier, ready to do what his country asked him to.
Imagine that soldier, fingering a lucky Zippo lighter in his pocket, another touching a cross nestled around his neck, all of them checking their weapons.
They take fire, three don’t make it out.
Things similar to these may have happened during the last moments of Sgt. First Class Donald “Donnie” Monroe Shue. Shue, an Army Green Beret, was serving with two others when they went missing on a mission Nov. 3, 1969. Shue, Staff Sgt. William Brown and Staff Sgt. Gunther Wald were last seen wounded 30 miles inside Laos, near Ban Chakevy Tai in Saravane Province. According to military documents, Shue and the other two men — as well as several men who escaped — were attached to a unit performing highly classified maneuvers throughout Southeast Asia.
The family was notified and Shue was listed as missing in action. On Jan. 15, 1979, he was classified as killed in action, and a military marker was put above an empty grave at Carolina Memorial Park.

Saturday, Shue finally came home.
