    Donna, I lost track of you some years ago and just happened to find this site honoring your dad. I want you to know that at each reunion, as we have for many years, his presence at our gathering is pronounced as "HERE" by all his kindred aviators and support. I left Vietnam before this tragedy occurred and many of the people who had first hand information about it has passed on.

    Happy, hilarious memories of my Uncle Clyde can never be erased!! An Honorable TSgt sacrificing his life for our Freedom forever remembered!! It was my honor and pleasure being your niece and including with my brother and your four children during what we would later learn, your last summer!! Uncle Clyde didn't hesitate to piling six (6) kids in his VW Bug be-bopping down Dalerido Road on our way to the pool at Gunter AFB in Montgomery, AL. He would have to stop before reaching the gate as all us kids were hanging outside the car!! There are no "seat belt laws" but we definitely were "over capacity"!! Uncle Clyde just didn't want to cause any problems with the Gate Guards!! He never gave us kids "time limit" - we all just knew when his cooler was empty and his cigar out - it was time to go!! A few days later, off we would go again!! I will never forget when we "received word", being so numb but walked to the high school of his oldest child to pick up her VW Bug - the same one that used to bounce down the road with squealing kids and one very happy man, Dad and Uncle just having some summer fun!! Love you Uncle Clyde and yes, I saw you wink at me while I visit your grave - just like you used to do - and it still makes me very happy and feel your love!!
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear TSGT Clyde Wendell Hanson, 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
