Staff Sgt. Donnie D. Dixon
United States Army
KIA 29 September 2007, Iraq
Staff Sgt. Donnie D. Dixon, 37, died of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit using
small arms fire, the Department of Defense announced Monday.
Dixon, who recently celebrated his 37th birthday, had spoken with his family in South Florida a little
more than a week prior to his death.
"I don't want anyone to go through this," said his mother, Dessie Dixon. "It's hard. It's very hard.
You see people go through it, but you don't experience the pain until it happens to you."
Dixon graduated from Miami Carol City Senior High School in 1988 and had been in the military ever
since. His second tour of duty in Iraq was set to come to an end in December.
"He had a very strong personality -- fun-loving, always saying something to make you laugh," said
his sister, Valencia Dixon.
Dixon's family said they had already begun planning a welcome home party for the husband and
father of five. Instead, they have to plan for his funeral.
The last time Dixon's mother saw her son was a year ago at his father's funeral.
"He'd try everything -- wrestling, baseball, basketball," said Dessie Dixon. "Anything, he'd do it."

D, can't believe its been seven years since you moved on to a better place, but then I
remember time waits on no man. I hope you are still up there standing guard over us until its
our time. Ronda showed me some pic of the new center in honor of your name that was
opened on the 29th, its good to see your name will forever be remembered and people will
know who you are/were. So rock on brother until next time...

Big D the is always the hardest month and year for me considering the lost of four more
friends and you a brother after we were in Iraq this same time from 06-07and spoke several
times but never got to see each other. I can still remember returning home in October
knowing that you would be on your way shortly until I received word you had moved on up
to the big house without giving me a shout. Although years has passed, that day would
always stay with me as long as I live, and so will the memories of the times we spent
together watching the kids plays or kicking back on the ROK talking shit or freezing up in
twin bridges.... Brother I say RIP and continue to bless your grace on your family and friends
until we meet again.

Hi my friend, I pray that GOD is still keeping you in his care. You were not only my friend but
a great help to me in the 3BCT when it came to the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. I cherish our
respect and friendship. I often think about you because you were a smart, brave, strong and
dedicated NCO. Always professional. Take care my friend until we meet again.

Hey trick! Been thinking of you and man, sometimes I can't believe you're gone. I was
thinking about when I got to Fort Hood from Germany and I needed to pick up my car that
was on its way to TX from Germany and you offered to take me to Dallas to pick it up in your
Sebring and I told you that I didn't want to put any miles on your car on my account and that
we should just take my other car, remember that? It was a nice sunny day and when we
were coming back, some heavy rains started to pour and you called me while we were
driving to tell me that you thought you had left your windows opened and the sunroof
cracked and sure enough, you did. Your ride was all wet and man I felt so bad and offered to
have it detailed and you said not to sweat it? Remember? Man I felt so bad about it but then
we'd laugh about it and little did I know you had that Cadi in Memphis and the Sebring was
your beater, lol. That was the first week i met you iirc (2003) an!
d we developed a friendship that lasted 4 years thereafter. Well man, just wanted to stop by
and share some thoughts! Ill see you when I get to heaven brother!

Missing SSG Dixon...always gave the best advice!  Missing you and the BDE! I think about
our deployment all the time. I'm so grateful to have been a part of training with you and to
have gotten to know you. I am elated to have found this website. What a great opportunity to
be able to give a tribute to one of the most influential NCO's I have ever known. God Bless
you and your family, I know God is keeping his hand of protection over them in your
absence.

Yo D, it's been while since I've gotten on your page so let me say what's up and to let you
know I still think of you daily brother and now since September is upon us, the memories
from the pass times hanging out together are just resurfacing. Much things has been going
on in this world of mine like another deployment but this time to Afghanistan where I taught
I might have never return from to prepping for Quatia's high school graduations. I still
remember both of your kids running around with her in Texas and having sleep overs, man
do time fly.
I saw a couple pic of DD on facebook and he's looking like you as he grows into a young
man, I hope he displays strong characteristic and pride like you did and make wisely choices
throughout his life. As for the girls, I hate to say it, but they look like their mom, lol, we both
know without you that would have not been possible. Before I forget, I saw a Honda accord
similar to your black one the other day, same rims and everything, thought it was yours for a
minute.
Anyway brother, say hello to my other friends up beyond there and continue to watch over
us ALL until we meet again.....

I served with SSG Donnie Dixon before in another Unit before his last deployment, i ran into
Donnie him at the Dining Facility on FOB Warhorse, Baquaba/Baquba, Iraq One Week before
i discoverd he had been killed by small arms fire, I was devestaded and get teary eyed nearly
every time I think about it. Donnie and I had served together in the same Unit for over a year,
if i remember correctly it had been nearly two years, and to run into him at FOB Warhorse,
was a pleasant surprise. I miss Donnie and I know he is missed by family and friends alike, it
was an honor to get to serve with Donnie Dixon, he was a fine soldier who proudly served
his country and is a hero.
You'll be greatly missed my brother, but never forgotten.

Sincerely,

SSG Marvin R Funkhouser Jr. U.S. Army Retired.

Yo D, what up brother? I'm here preping for another trip across the water and I can't help not
think of you and the family. Wish you all were here close by to hang out like we use to in
Hood. Finally the deployments are slowing down and hopefully stopping soon. Sometimes I
wonder what have we all accomplished from all this time away from our love ones and
especially for MEN like you who laid it all on the line so other could have freedom and liberty.
Hopefully if not in our lives, our children could see what YOU and all the military have done
for others. But know this brother, as long as the lord gives me a breath of air to arise on a
daily, YOU and all those other friends I lost and for those I didn't know but are my brothers
and sisters who are hanging out BBQing with you at the GATEs, I will never forget you all.....

There was a memorial this weekend in honor of some Soldiers that died in a Helicopter
crash in Afganistan in my unit. I couldnt help but to think of you bro.  That dreary day when I
got the email from Latrese stating that you had passed. Those feelings are still so surreal
today. I wish you could tell me how it is to be on the other side of death. I know we all have
to go through it to get to the other side, and I know God was waiting for you to tell you its all
right, you are home, safe and sound. I know you are good. But the human nature of those
that miss you are not so good.  We deal with it on a day to day but there is still something
that triggers those memories. There is something that intensifies the memories.  We love
you bro and miss you dearly..One.

What up Fam,

It's been awhile since I been on your page. I'm still trying to make it do what it do. I
constantly think about your family. Especially your kids.  I see they are growing up so fast
and I know you are proud of them.  What a amazing mother Latrese is! God is still in in the
blessing business.  Though you are not here with us in the physical you will always remain
in our hearts and our lives.  I love you bro!!

D, what up son, been meaning to drop you a line but as you know things are crazy when
moving to another unit. Came across some old pic from the ROK the other day, time has
really flew by since we left that place but old memories never die. I believe god puts us in
places for specific reasons and we question it daily but why was it your turn son? I hope the
family is doing fine and moving through each day living for you, continue watching over
them daily and guiding them in the right direction as needed. Well bro, until we meet again,
stay up and i'll hit you on the down low.....

D, what up son, I've been meaning to drop you a line but with the PCSing, and trying to get
settle it's been crazy. I watched a video of your old unit while in Germany, some of the guys
who where there during your time I believe posted a xmas clip. It was early 90s late 80s. I'm
in italy now and still running into some cats that served with you in the CAV. You are a well
known brother and will never be forgotten. It's good to see that the wife and kids are doing
good and are getting old, or is that us? I still remember bria and tia playing and DD hanging
around being the only boy during the sleep overs and Saturday afternoons. Time is fast
approaching the four year mark since you left us but it's like yesterday hearing the news.
Son I just wish we had linked up while in country one more time but i guess the man above
had other plans for us. So meanwhile until we meet again, drink a long one just like the old
days and rest well my brother. !

Hey Bighead.. time is really passing us by, Shabri just celebrated her 17th B'Day,,man she is
really growing up. Not to mention the fact of her taking cap-n-gown pictures. I really hate this
part, knowing how we talked about her graduating and its finally getting ready to happen and
you are not here in body. DD is getting ready to hit 16 and tamya is becoming a teenager..
Man, see what you left me with?? But I know I can handle it and you knew it as well. I know
God would not have taken you if I was unable to handle what life throws at me..I love and
miss you soooo much and I know its ok to cry cause I truly have something to cry about..
but then I smile cause I think of all the good times and I look at the children and they all
remind me of you!!

What up bro! Man I finally got that promotion to CW2. Your boy been waiting on that since
April but the Sec-def finally release the scroll-list.  Man I miss you my dawg.  Its strange that
when you were here, we didnt talk as much cause you were doing your thang, I was doing
my thang and we were thousands of miles apart just doing our thing bro.  But I'm glad when
we did speak it was priceless. We never skipped a beat about all the Korea days and the
days after. You were a wild boy dawg! For real....lol. Man your kids are mad big now dude!
damnnn...Oh girl doing a wonderful job bro...I know you are definitely proud of her...I so wish
I could rewind time. Wish I had that power to change the things that I didnt like or want to
happen, but if that was the case I guess there would be no need for the BIG GUY in the sky.   
We do know that the wages of sin is death, but the gift from God is eternal life. The pain we
all have to go through to get that gift. And I a!
sk myself sometimes is it really worth it? Yes it is.  The ultimate sacrafice came from him
allowing his son to pay that ulitmate wage for all of us.  So my brother, keep on keeping on.  
Love u my dawg!!

I wear a bracelet for Donnie everyday.  I did not know him well but we worked together in
Ba'Qubah and I got the chance to talk to him a few times. 2007 was a terrible year and I saw
a lot of death and destruction, but Donnie's death stood out the most in my heart and on my
mind.  I never want him forgotten.  I say a toast to him every memorial day and before any
army dinner I go too.  Donnie, you may be on guard up there, but you are so missed here.  
Thank you to his family for the tribute page.  I am so sorry for your loss.

D,dropping in to say whats up. Every time I get on this page I still can't believe your gone.
Only last week I lost another brother not to include 2 last year. It's been a rough year bro,
not as tuff as Treese and the kids felt and are still feeling without you. My time to report to
Italy is coming fast and although exciting, I'm nervous because of the up coming deployment
in 2012. With God willing I can lead these guys and bring them all back home. Miss you bro, I
found some old pic from the ROCK last week of all of us while we were in KTC and heading
down range. They say memories never die kid and that true. I'm going to try and link up with
all the old Barbarians from the rock so if you read this hit me on FB. Alright son, rest good
bro until we meet.

Dear Mrs. Dixon;

I am so sorry for your son's death. Today, 02/04/2011 while searching through youtube, I
discovered this heartbreaking news. Donnie was my friend. He was my battle buddy in basic
training, Fort Benning, GA. Eco. 3/32 Infantry, Sept 21, 1988. Our Drill Sergeants were Page
and Gomez. I served with Donnie in the Dco. 4th/16th Infantry, 1st Inf Div. in Goeppingen,
Germany Cooke Barracks. While I was in Iraq OIF III 2004-2005, I ran into another one of our
basic training buddies named Taylor. We were disconnected for 20 yrs., we spoke about
good times and he told me that Donnie was still in Florida. I wish that I got to see him when I
returned from the war. My heart was broken tonight, and I cried like I never cried before in
my life. His face is still on my tv. Wow, he was such a fun loving guy. I called my mother and
cried to her tonight because no one else would have understood my pain. Although, Donnie
and I were disconnected for over 20 years, we were brothers and I loved him. I am so sorry
for your loss, Mrs. Dixon. The world is missing a great man. Spc. Richard Colon.

Yo D, what up son. I was at Hood last week conducting an MTT for 2/5 CAV and dropped in
to see how you were doing. The wall for all you guys look nice brother, but seeing your
name on it really brought back some hurting feeling. I was sitting there for about an hour
just reminiscing about the good old times. I went by your old BDE to see if I could obtain
some info about you and to see if a memorial was constructed for all of you guys. The S
shop said it is still in the process. I got pissed son, what the F is in the process? It's going on
three years since that day and hearing that shit pissed me off. I had to leave to clear my head
son. On another note, remember how you want me to come back to hood to see how it had
change, I was amazed at that place, Hood is crazy big and still busy. I need you to look out
for two of my friends who just went your way, SGT Santiago and MSG Van Alast, their are
good people just like you, so hook up with them and have a drink!

Whats going on brother? Man I was just thinking about the good times we had in Korea.  
Getting wasted at the Warriors Club,lol..THose were the days. Dude you had a profound
affect on al ot of people.  You had Swag before the term Swag came out lol.  That was that
down south mentality...They got to love us and respect us for that..  I miss you as much as
today then when I found out the news a few years ago. Its just amazing how you are in my
thoughts every single day and your family in my prayers.  God does that though. He makes
sure everyday that i recall or think about my dawg!! Until next time babyboy.....we'll holler.....

Yo son, checkin in to see how my brother Ranger is doing. I finally went to WHOA school
(RANGER SCHOOL) and it was crazy, brother lost over 25lbs. Came back and didn't even
want to see myself in the mirror. I always thought Flordia was a tropical state but while in
that final flordia phase it was cold as balls. The temps where never above 45 in the day and
drop below freezing at night. It was reported that record temps were set in nine years and I
had to be there. Remember twin bridges when we had to pull guard duty. It was so them cold
we had to light a fire..lol..Crazy.. I saw the kids pic on face book and they are growing well,
wifie is doing a good job raising them and I know that's tuff. All props to her. Well son, rest
well and keep an eye out for all of your peps until it's time for us all to relax and enjoy life
after life. Rest well Ranger.
AND I WILL SHOLDER MORE THAN THE SHARE OF MY TASK WHAT EVER IT MAY BE,
100% AND THEN SOME.   RANGERS LEAD THE WAY>>>>>
LATA BROTHER

your place. He told me that this was something yall talked about only that you were suppose
to stand there. You would have been proud.. and yes he did talk about you. I told him, one
day we will both be able to share your story without either of us getting chocked up.. he's
headed back to Hood,, but I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you and
how proud I was of our son..he didn't get your name for nothing (smile)

Whats going on man! Its been a minute since I hollered at you, but between the move and
getting the crew settled in, been kind of hectic.  We finally made it to HRC bro.  The
assignment that I wanted my entire career and guess what bro...It aint all that. lol.  It is what
it is.  Your boy had different expecations but I'm still making it do what it do.  Man, I know
you know Bradshaw a Ranger now! Thats crazy son! I talked to SFC(R) Williams about a
week ago!  I found that dude out on global! He still in Stewart working as a Contractor.  Bro, I
miss you dawg!  I always say why my dawg Dixon? But then I realize that we all have to go
down that road someday.  We never know the circumstances of how we go, but everything
that lives must die.  Man I appreciate the fact that I was blessed to have known you your
days here. Your spirit will live on.  Through your wife, your kids and everybody else who
was blessed to have known you.  Until next time my dawg.....One....
