  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear WO Zoltan Alajos Kovacs, 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

    Meghatottsággal,de büszkén olvassuk neved a falon.Büszke Rátok minden Magyar,hogy új hazátokért haltatok hõsi halált.Hála és imádság hõsi nevetekért.
    Isten nyugosztalja minden elesett testvérünket!

    So. You were Hungarian. An American. I was a kid in Hungary, when you died in Vietnam. Decades later I am writing this text to the virtual space, and hope that somebody read it, as I do with others text
    God bless you

    Zoltan and I went through helicopter flight school in the same class. He worked very hard to earn his wings. Dong Xwai was being over run and every available helicopter was called there for help. Zolton was in on the first airlift of troops to reinforce the fort. Two helicopters including his flew over a bridge. Under the bridge was a .50 caliber machine gun. It took out both helicopters losing all 12 men on each chopper. Zolton was an excellent officer and served his country proudly. Thanks, for a job well done friend. You will never be forgotton.
