Biographical Note: Donald Albert Price was born on June 19, 1940, in Lebanon, Tennessee, to parents Clyde and Irene Price. At Lebanon High School he played on the varsity football team and was president of his graduating class. With the unknown recommendation of local Lebanon attorney William Baird, Price was appointed a first alternate position to the United States Military Academy at West Point by Senator Albert Gore, Sr. Through a series of fortunate events, Price advanced past two other first alternates when a principal appointee was unable to accept his offer. Price enrolled at West Point in 1958, immediately following high school.

The transition to West Point was challenging for Price, but he slowly acclimated to the regimented schedule and strict rules. His coursework was a mix of military tactics, science, and liberal arts, including the Russian language. In his correspondence with his parents, it was clear that Price enjoyed the usual rites of passage: attending football games, courting young women, and asking his parents for money. Price graduated on June 6, 1962, commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army.
In the fall of 1962, Price followed his post-graduation orders to attend the Army Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia. While completing his Airborne training and Ranger school, he met his future wife Faye Hawkins. A short courtship resulted in an engagement just before Price shipped off for Korea.

Price reported to Camp Kaiser in July 1963, five miles South of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea. He served as a member of Company A, 2nd Battalion, 31st Infantry, a unit that was part of the United Nations' peace keeping efforts. As a first lieutenant, his primary duties were to train and lead a platoon responsible for the Davy Crockett weapons system, a tactical nuclear recoilless rifle.
Price's first assignment in Vietnam lasted from 19661967, where he was promoted to captain in command of Company A, 3rd Battalion, 39th Infantry Division in Rach Kien. His unit conducted dangerous patrols throughout the delta region of southern Vietnam. On June 21, 1967, shrapnel from a Vietcong hand grenade wounded Price, earning him a Purple Heart. Price enoyed a brief hiatus from action in which he attempted to resign from the Army to pursue further education. The Army required the further service of a well-trained infantry officer, leaving Price with the decision to volunteer for another tour in Vietnam from 19691970. His new assignment was in the Military Assistance Command Vietnam (MACV) as the senior district advisor for Tay Ninh City, located near the Cambodian border. As a supervisor in MACV, Price directed the efforts of the South Vietnamese Army and provincial police, and also aided in the economic development and advising of local communities by interacting with the Vietnamese people.

Price's final tour abroad was in Germany with the U.S. Army Europe. He finished his career with the Joint Special Operations Command, working with aerial surveillance and reconnaissance at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He retired in 1982 at the rank of lieutenant colonel, earning several medals throughout his career, such as the Bronze Star, the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, the Legion of Merit, and the Meritorious Service Medal. Price used the free time in retirement to honor the soldiers under his command by reviewing combat records and filing for the medals due to them.

Scope and Content: The Donald A. Price Papers document Price's academic and military training at the United States Military Academy at West Point and his military service following graduation. Most of the papers consist of correspondence between Price and his wife and parents while he was stationed overseas, and military records detailing every aspect of his military career, including his awards, promotion, and orders. The complete set of the 39th Infantry Regiment Daily Officer's Journals for the year of 1967 would be of interest to researchers of officers' responsibilities and tactical level combat. There are also photographs and museum objects that pertain to Price's time at West Point and his military service.

Series 1. Correspondence. This series contains personal correspondence between Price and his family while he was attending West Point and stationed overseas. It is divided into the subseries 1) Letters received by Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Price (Donald's Parents), 2) Letters from Donald Price to Faye Price (Hawkins), 3) Letters from Faye Price (Hawkins) to Donald Price, and 4) Letters from other friends and family to Donald Price. Letters are arranged chronologically within these subseries. The majority of letters are from 1958–1962, while Price was at West Point, 1963–1964 while he was stationed in Korea, 1966–1967 and 1969–1970 while he was stationed in Vietnam, and 1975–1978 when he was stationed in Germany with his wife and children. The content of the letters vary, with the majority of correspondence recounting the daily activities of Price at West Point and abroad, as well as discussions on the difficulties of being away from family and friends. Combat situations are not a common topic, but Price provides his perspective on the local people in Korea and Vietnam and the men he is serving with in his unit.

Series 2. Military Records. This series contains a variety of military records, including training certificates, orders relating to promotion, requested leave, military publications, unit rosters, and other documents relating to his military career (1958–1982). Most of this series consists of the Daily Officer's Journals for the 39th Infantry Regiment for the year of 1967, which were officers’ reports of daily activities including tactical level combat. Price received copies of these journals from the United States National Archives and Records Administration intending to use them to help secure medals for soldiers in his unit who had never received them. Price annotated and added page numbers to the journals.

Series 3. Ephemera. This series includes materials collected by Price over time, such as newspaper clippings and magazine articles, documents from a Vietnam War Memorial dedication in Sumter, South Carolina, and documents from Price's retirement activities when he remained in touch with friends he had served with in Vietnam and fought to secure medals for soldiers who had not received them.

Series 4. Books and Audiovisual. This series includes West Point yearbooks and directories, as well as books and VHS videos about the Vietnam War. A bound copy of the 1957 "Bugle Notes," an instructional guide for cadet knowledge and etiquette, would be of special interest to researchers who want to understand the social atmosphere of West Point.

Series 5. Photographs. This series contains 249 black and white and colored photographs, and 46 negatives. Most of the photographs relate to West Point and Price's military career, although there are some photographs of his friends and family. An inventory of these photoographs with images and descriptions will be available as part of this finding aid in the near future. Until then, contact the archivist for information about the images.

Series 6. Museum Objects. This series contains various objects including, but not limited to, Price's military awards and medals, his West Point uniform, blankets he used in Vietnam, his West Point class ring, and his coin collection. Contact the archivist for more information regarding these materials.
