  • Final Mission of CAPT Carl S. Kizer

    Posted on 7/21/16 - by
    CAPT Carl S. Kizer was an infantry unit commander assigned to Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division. On June 19, 1968, CAPT Kizer was tragically killed in Binh Duong Province, RVN, while on a combat operation by a friendly artillery shell directed at the enemy that hit a treetop and exploded prematurely. This occurred just days before his tour of duty was up. It is important to note that he didn't have to go out that day, but he had volunteered anyway. [Taken from and]

    Dear Carl: I remember you well as a member of the ROTC program. You were a Senior and I was a Junior. We also had one class together and that was an Advanced French Class with Dr. James Kilker. I admired your perfect French accent. I graduated in 1963 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of Infantry. I sent 30 years in the Army, both active and reserve time and retired as a Colonel. Thank you for your service to our nation. You made the supreme sacrifice and your legacy will live on in my heart and prayers. Thank you Carl and may you rest in eternal peace. God Bless You

    Dear Captain Carl Sanford Kizer, 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
