    Yes he did Dennis. He was a great guy and though all these years have passed he is very much a part of my memories. I wish I knew his family and where they were. The way he died was indicative of the way he lived.

    Dear SGT Wilson Couch Koehler, 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

    Charles, I read your post and I can help you with the time when you parted ways and Wilson died. I knew Wilson from the time he arrived in DaNang until his death. We were good friends and I hated when he went to Minh Long. He was exactly as you described and I was devastated when he was killed. I was on convoy security between Chu Lai and DaNang and didn't hear about it until I arrived in DaNang. I wanted to escort Wil's body back to the states but sarge wouldn't let me. I wrote a letter to his family and I will never forget him. It's been 43 years and I still think about him. Wilson I am giving a speech today at the war memorial in Clarksville Indiana and I will talk about you.
