  • I was there.

    I didn't know Robert, but I was there and saw the entire event from 50' away. The day before our unit had lost 8 guys and requested reinforcements. Robert and the others were sent in to reinforce us. I was talking to the chopper pilot when he lost power and crashed in front of us. I helped retrieve all the bodies and put them on the next chopper. I will never forget that day and am so sorry Robert and the others lost their lives. God Bless everyone of those guys on that chopper.

  • Final Mission of SGT Robert Hrisoulis

    Posted on 11/12/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On January 21, 1971, a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter CH-46A (tail number 153364) from Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 364 (HMM-364) were flying chase bird on Mission 6, an admin hop for the 1st Marines. With 18 troops aboard, they approached a zone called HILL 363 (ZC172587). As they were on short final the aircraft started losing power and despite trying to wave off the approach the aircraft settled into the trees. The crash resulted in six Marines killed and the remaining seventeen personnel injured. The exact cause of the accident remains unknown since the aircraft was completely destroyed by fire in an insecure zone. The lost personnel included medic HM3 Eugene J. Levickis, SGT Robert Hrisoulis, PFC Gregory S. Karger, CPL Steven W. Moll, and PFC Bartow W. Potts Jr. [Taken from popasmokecom and vhpa.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Robert Hrisoulis, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
