I was with him the night he died and I think about him all of the time. I want to make sure that he is not forgotten. We lost a few men that night, but Donny was a friend and a memorable young guy. My memory does not let me remember much about him anymore.
From a friend,
A Note from The Virtual Wall"A" Troop, 3/5th Cavalry, is known to have lost two men on 20 August 1968 - SFC Clarence Fulton of Baltimore, Maryland, and SGT Donald R. Sizemore.
Donald R. Sizemore is buried in Section B, White Rose Cemetery, Pacolet, Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
9TH INFANTRY DIVISION
The 3rd/5th Cavalry was dismounted in February, 1943, and re-organized under Infantry Tables of Organization and Equipment. It was re-organized wholly as Infantry in July, 1945, but retained its Cavalry designation. After Korea, the 3rd/5th Cavalry was de-activated in 1958. In 1966, it was activated for duty with the 9th Infantry Division "Old Reliables". Upon arrival, the Black Knights joined in the Division's first major contact of the war -- Operation Colby in 1967.
