Over 1,000 participate in procession for Vietnam vet
The cities of Concord and Kannapolis are preparing to say a final farewell to a hometown hero Saturday. Fallen Vietnam veteran Sgt. 1st Class Donald Shue, a Concord native with the Army Special Forces, was first reported missing in Vietnam in November 1969, and his remains were just recently found.
Sgt. First Class Donald Shue's remains were recently found after he was reported missing in action in 1969. The Concord native, who later moved to Kannapolis, was a member of the Army Special Forces. More than 40 years after his disappearance, Shue's family and the community can begin to have closure as they bid him a final farewell.
“To have one come home who has been missing is rewarding. Not only for us but especially for his family,” said Bill Barclay, U.S. Army Special Forces.
