    Fellow 1st Cav WO1
    Everyday we flew on the edge
    I still remember that hot day in III Corp just a few clicks from the Cambodian border as if it was yesterday. We had become friends in Alpha Company 227th aviation Bn. We both were dedicated American soldiers, flying UH1H Huey's Landing Zone Moe was being evacuated after two months as a fire base. We were picking up the last grunts in a loose formation of six helicopters. Karl was flying as pilot in aircraft off to my left and forward Their helicopter came up in a hover over a 75 Ft jungle tree line and rotated forward to forward flight. It was hot in the late afternoon and the helicopters were at the limit of available power to make the transition to forward flight from the high hover. They fell through the maneuver . We called it 'falling through'. Flying on the edge of the power of the Lycoming turbine engine. They just ran out of power and luck that day The Huey fell through the jungle and crashed. Out of the crew of four and the five grunts, only the aircraft commander survived the crash As I was climbing out of the LZ, I was looking down at the crash and had a tree strike with my rotor blade which almost did us in. We survived the incident. I was grieved at the loss of Karl. We were both quiet sincere individuals without the flashy bravado associated with Vietnam Helicopter Pilots, soldiers serving the USA I still think of Karl over the course time, a personal knowledge of the meaning of sacrifice and the reality that you never know when you might come to that edge and fall through. To his loved ones, more than forty years after his death, I extend the condolence of a friend and comrade and hope this history will portray to them the courage their son and brother qexhibited everyday flying on the edge in combat.
    REST IN PEACE, and may gods grace and kindness go with you and your family............

    Dear WO Karl Thomas Anteau, 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
