1SG Malcolm Cyril Dulac was born Friday December 25,1931 in Dexter, Maine. He was one of ten born to Maurice and Minnie Dulac. Malcolm lived mostly with his grandparents because there was not much room at home. As an adolescent, Malcolm spent more time hunting then going to school which resulted in him only completing school through the eighth grade; it eventually led to him joining the Army influenced by his dad's recommendation. At just shy of seventeen, he and two friends enlisted. After training at Ft. Dix, NJ he was sent to Korea for what would be his first combat deployment.

In September 1967, 1SG Dulac deployed to Vietnam as First Sergeant assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 50th Infantry. At noon on 5 May 1968, near the villages of An Bao in Binh Dinh Province, Company A forces were attacked and outnumbered 10 to 1 by a Regiment of the North Vietnamese Army. Company A forces were overrun and took heavy casualties. 1SG Dulac was close to the end of his enlistment but wanted to go out to the field with the troops one last time. He was in the medic Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) with SP5 Donald Stephenson and Medic PFC Bruce Tabor. All three were killed that day.

1SG Dulac was thrown from the Medic's APC when it was struck by enemy rocket fire. Despite his wounds, he returned to the burning APC to remove more wounded. 1SG Dulac died from wounds and burns 5 May 1968 at the age of 36. He is buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Dexter Maine and was survived by his daughter, parents, five sisters and two brothers. His awards and decorations include the Bronze Star with Valor w/2 0LC, Purple Heart, Air Medal, Combat Infantry Badge 2nd Award, Good Conduct, National Defense, Korean Service, Vietnam Service, and Vietnam Campaign.
