Canton, Georgia – 03-15-19

ABOUT THE MISSION:
The family of Mr. Donald William “Bill” King, Captain US Army has asked that the Patriot Guard stand a Silent Flag line at the interment of their Hero at the Georgia National Cemetery. I have informed them that it will be Our Honor and Privilege to do so.

His awards included, Distinguished Flying Cross; 2 Air Medals, Bronze Star, National Defense ribbon, Vietnam Service Medal, RVNCM,Army Aviation Badge and 1 OS Service Bar. His Vietnam Service ended when his OH-6 was Shot Down on July 4 1970. After his time in Vietnam he was with the HHT 1st/14 ACR USAREUR until he was released from active duty. Following his military time, he continued to serve his country in the Civil Service and retired as a disaster planner at Ft. McPherson after 31 yrs. where he met his wife who is also a Veteran. This will be a Flag line only mission. We will stand a Silent Flag line while Military Honors are rendered.

  4. Post Mission Report Donald William “Bill” King Capt. USA/USAR
    Fourteen Patriots gathered at the Georgia National Cemetery as the Rain abated to Honor the Life and Service of Mr. Donald William “Bill ” King. Mr King was a highly Decorated Vietnam Veteran serving with the “Bastard Brigade” Troop D 3rd/5th Air Cav. Lighthorse . He flew OH6 “Loach” helicopters. Many of his former Brothers in Arms were present to Honor his Service.
    Military Honors were rendered by the US Army Honors team, a three Volley salute was rendered by the Honors team from the American Legion/ VFW. Bagpipes were played and a Saber Arch was rendered by members of His Unit. I presented his wife with a Certificate of Honor from the American Legion and a condolence card signed by all in attendance as well as an Angel coin.
    I would like to thank everyone that was able to come today to Honor this Hero. Special thanks to Byron “Gimpy” Hall for escorting the family and friends to the shelter and to Reuben “Tailgunner” Baumgardner for bringing flags today.

    William “Buffalo Bill” Kalway RCIC
