  • Thank you to my Neighbor

    I knew you as the big brother to your sister and my friend, Beth. I remember especially the winter when you and your friends rode a toboggan down the hill between our house and your grandfather's, laughing all the way, as you edged along the steep drop off into our yard. You would not remember me, but I have thought of you often over the years and I just wanted to say thank you for serving our country.

  • Final Mission of LT Michael F. Haifley

    Posted on 11/21/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On December 28, 1972, a North American RA-5C (#156633) from Reconnaissance Attack Squadron Thirteen (RVAH-13) was attacked by a Vietnam People's Air Force MiG while flying over the Gulf of Tonkin. The MiG fired an air-to-air missile which caused the RA-5C to catch fire and crash into the sea. The pilot, LCDR Alfred H. Agnew, successfully ejected from the aircraft, but his naval flight officer (NFO), LT Michael F. Haifley, was killed in the crash. LCDR Agnew was captured by the North Vietnamese and held until March 29, 1973. [From the book U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps Aircraft Damaged or Destroyed by Douglas E. Campbell]

    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.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 1/28/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear LT Michael Firestone Haifley, 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
