10 April- We were taking it easy after leisure breakfast of field rations (10-in-1). Suddenly several artillery rounds burst overhead, about the height of the coconut trees. These shells had proximity fuses and were fired from a dual purpose 75mm gun. Pvt. Andersen  was struck by shrapnel and fatally wounded.

Extract "D" Co. History

 

 

 

 

Donnie's remains were re-interred from the Philippines to Inglewood Cemetery in the late '50s'.  Because of the current danger of the neighborhood his family plans to move him again.  I do not know how far these plans have progressed. 

 Here is a temporary picture of him.  I am seeking a portrait picture, preferably in uniform.
