    I knew Dan from being at Elmendorf AFB, a short period of time late in high school. I graduated from East Anchorage High School June 1967, I remember Dan as an easy going guy that I lost track of him. I was serving in Vietnam during the period Dan was assigned to Vietnam. I was a Chief Warrant Officer 2 flying Bell UH-1H helicopters in the same division, 101st Airborne Division. Dan was assigned to Eagle Dustoff at Camp Eagle, and I wasn't far away with B Company 101st Aviation Battalion 101st Aviation Group 101st Airborne Division Airborne (Airmobile). I had been in country since April 1970, and was busy flying in support of division, and the Army of Vietnam (ARVN) operation Lam Son 719/Dewy Canyon II. I didn't know Dan was in country, or that he was with Eagle Dustoff. I did have one friend Fred Behrens a pilot with Eagle Dustoff. Too little, too late at this date, but memories from days long in the past.

    Dear SP5 Daniel Franklin Cox, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
