Purpose of this web site

While this website's intent is to recognize and record the great sacrifices made by thousands of men for the cause of Freedom, it is not intended to glorify war. 

15th Cadre

Reunion 1992 host Bob Donnan is the Founder of the 7/15th Field Artillery reunion organization and the original Editor of the Highlander newsletter. 

Dan Gillotti, 15th FA Historian, leads the effort in recording the history of the 15th Field Artillery Regiment. Due to Dan's dedicated efforts, we've obtained important artifacts from each era and war, as well as establishing contact with our two active 15th FA Battalions. Dan also volunteers as the Historian for the 30th FA Regiment. 

Dave Holdorf became 15th Group Leader and Editor of the Highlander newsletter in 1995.  'Davo' excels at locating 15th veterans, communicating with veteran's groups and families, and organizing 15th activities. Under Davo's dedicated leadership, our 15th roster has grown from 50 to 600 members! 

Reunion 2001 host Luis Cantu became Editor of the 'Highlander' newsletter in 2003, following two years of innovative Editorial work by author/artist Gary Harrington. 

Mike Donley became the organization's Treasurer and Quartermaster in 2001. Mike has established the 15th PX as an excellent fundraising tool for the 15th organization with several new products and ideas. 

Frank Baker assumed the duties of 15th webmaster during June 2004, following 7 years of website construction by Bob Donnan. You can visit Frank's Vietnam photo gallery here.

No salaries are paid to any of the men listed above... 
it's an "all volunteer" effort.  Allons!
