Vietnam-era Green Beret finally returns home

There are 14 comments on the TwinCities.com story from Apr 29, 2011, titled Vietnam-era Green Beret finally returns home. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

No one had seen Sgt. 1st Class Donald Shue since he was on a mission in Laos during the Vietnam War in November 1969, so his sister was skeptical when Army officials called a few months ago to say his remains had been found.

RIP indeed, he has earned the rest.

I am still waiting for MSG Samuel ALMENDARIZ, missing since Jul 1967, to be found. Still wearing his MIA bracelet

It is way past time and now maybe he can receive the honors others failed to receive at the end of the war. May he rest in peace and his family find the peace they need.

My bad, the dirtbag poster FINEPIX has made me mad enough for now, the MONITOR should ban this person on moral grounds alone. My last post was for the forenamed P O S, FINEPIX
just keep clicking report abuse a few times, they will take it off, but it might take awhile.

You weren't here when Finpic posted so you could not see what he wrote. If you wish look up my post and you will see what happened.

It is too bad people, especially the young, are sacrificed on the altar of war. It is sad to lose a child, but a half a world away, when you can't be with him or her, is just unimaginable. I feel sorry for the people who died, but especially for the families who lost their children.

No I'm not, I am an honorably discharged veteran. I can only guess that you're a freakin coward that has'nt done a thing for your country and would back the comment that that POS- FINEPIX had to say about a service member that will finally be laid to rest in his country. God save us from trash like you and FINEPIX. Have a nice day.

I need to explain my first post, There is a poster out there that goes by FINEPIX and he had some very nasty things to say about Sgt 1st. class Shue, I said what I thought was appropriate at the time and asked that FINEPIX post be removed. NOW my posts can certainly be misconstrued. I have nothing but pride my heart for our veterans, the people that say ill things about them will hear my wrath wether appropriate or not.

I'm from McAllen, TX, hometown of MSGT Almendariz, and I have spent the last year trying to find a picture of him for the Virtual Wall. I have done extensive research on MSGT Almendariz, and I, too, wear his bracelet,(a new one, not an original), but I know that he was killed on July 12, 1967 in Laos. Nevertheless, his family deserves to have his remains returned for proper burial in the US. As a top-notch Special Forces soldier, he was the best of the best. Another Special Forces soldier was lost with him and is also listed as "KIA-BNR",(body not recovered; one soldier made it out and verified their deaths). To me, he is still MIA, one of the 1177 from Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and I will continue to support the POW/MIA organization for even better efforts to bring our guys home. Thanks for your support. "Still missing, but not forgotten."

Welcome home! Mr.shue but things have changed in America since your passing.
And somewhat I think that you would be ashamed of what's going on now.
Thank you so much ! Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice for a useless war.
Your bravery should never be forgotten. Or took for granted.
