Donald Coe

ABU Company ’70 /’71


My father, Donald Lafayette Coe served in this unit, “ABU” 1/327th, in Vietnam. He never went into much detail about his time in Vietnam, which I understand. I knew that he was a door gunner and was deaf in one ear because of it.

He was in-country 1970/1971 and another earlier tour which I do not have the time frames on.

I’m am sad to say that he passed away on June 13, 2009 at the age of 61. He stayed in the Army after Vietnam and served for 23 years with pride, retiring as a 1st Sgt.
