  • Final Mission of CAPT Charles G. Dudley

    Posted on 2/18/16 - by
    CAPT Thomas H. Wolfe was a Nail Forward Air Controller assigned to the 23rd Tactical Air Support Squadron at Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, flying O-1 aircraft. His last mission on June 28, 1966 was flying in an A-26A (#64-17650), giving orientation to the A-26 crew in the Steel Tiger area of Laos. They were hit by ground fire 10 miles north of Ban Phakat. The aircraft exploded and there were no parachutes observed nor were there any rescue beeps transmitted. The other two lost crewmen included 1LT Anthony F. Cavalli and CAPT Charles G. Dudley. All three airmen were designated Killed in Action/Body Not Recovered. This was the first daytime loss of an A-26 in Laos. [Taken from and]
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear Captain Charles G Dudley, 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

    Curt Carter

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
