  • Always a Gunfighter . . . Always a Hero!

    Posted on 2/19/18 - by Marv "Sandy" Sandbek, Crew Chief/F-4D 66-7591
    Dear Lt. Joe: I think of you often; the memories of our time together with the 389th TFS flood over me at times. My thoughts turn to your professionalism, your great attitude and passion as a "Phantom Phlyer," and your appreciation and respect for us "Phantom Phixer's!" Chief Echols told us Crew Chiefs to "not get too close" to our aircrew members, but you made that very hard to do! You were friendly, congenial, and so supportive of your Crew Chiefs! I will never forget your kindness, or your "great smile!" I will also never forget that awful morning . . . I watched the entire, horrific accident unfold. It happened so fast, and so nearby. At the moment, I did not know it was you who was in peril. But, within seconds, after I looked more closely at the aircraft tail number, it was evident that my friend and favorite aircrew member was likely involved, and badly injured. I cannot describe how your ULTIMATE SACRIFICE has impacted my days, months and years since Danang! The images and realities of that day haunt me today, just as they have for the past 50 years! So, Lt. Joe, just know you are not forgotten, that your memory lives on, and that a fellow Gunfighter thinks of you often! Rest in Peace, Sir! It was an honor and privilege to serve with you!

    Dear 1LT Joseph Patrick Logan Jr, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
    Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

    Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
    KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

    We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heroes lost to the War in Vietnam:
    ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
  • Thank YOU
