    On October 10, 1968, a U.S. Air Force helicopter HH-43B Huskie (tail number 58-1845), callsign Pedro 44, assigned to Detachment 1, 38th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron (38th ARRS) at Phan Rang Air Base in Ninh Thuan Province, RVN, was scrambled with the fire suppression kit (FSK) to standby for the emergency landing of a B-57. Pedro 44 entered a left-hand climbing turn over the airfield when it crashed and burned, killing all five crewmembers. The lost crew included pilots MAJ Donald R. Brooks and CAPT Von M.

    In 1968, I flew on the HH-43B helicopters with Capt Libernecht. We were assigned to the Air rescue unit at Reese AFB and he shipped out shortly to Vietnam.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/9/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear Captain Von Miles Liebernecht, 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

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
