  • Mitch

    Christine, I remember Mitch and you and how things were in '67. In front of the Dairy Queen... I visit his grave every time I am in East Bernard and I recently visited the Vietnam War Memorial in DC. I had no idea where his name was and I asked the attendant of the Memorial where I can find his name and Ironically, I was standing right in front of his name!! I will never forget him...

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/14/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SP4 Frank George Michulka, 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

  • MY TRIBUTE AT TRAVELLING WALL IN EL CAMPO JULY 2012

    Posted on 10/18/12 - by Christine Owen c979owen@yahoo.com

    2012 MARKS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNITED


    STATES OFFICIAL ENTRY INTO THE VIETNAM WAR.


    WE ARE HERE TODAY TO HONOR THE MEN AND WOMEN


    WHO SERVED THEIR COUNTRY IN VIETNAM. IF THERE


    IS ONE THING THIS COUNTRY LEARNED FROM THE


    VIETNAM WAR IT IS THAT YOU CAN HONOR THE


    SERVICE EVEN IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE WAR


    ITSELF. LIKE THE WALL IT IS ABOUT THE WARRIOR,


    NOT THE WAR.


    ONE OF THE NAMES ON THE WALL IS FRANK MICHULKA,


    ALSO KNOWN AS MITCH OR FRANKIE. MITCH LOVED HIS


    FAMILY AND FRIENDS, THIS GREAT STATE OF TEXAS AND


    HIS HOMETOWN OF EAST BERNARD. BUT BEST OF ALL


    HE LOVED ME.


    MITCH WAS DRAFTED IN JANUARY, 1967 AND LEFT FOR


    FORT POLK JANUARY 30TH WHERE HE SPENT FOUR MONTHS


    GOING THROUGH BASIC TRAINING AND TIGERLAND


    TRAINING BEFORE COMING HOME IN JUNE ON LEAVE.


    WHILE HOME ON LEAVE HE SOLD HIS CAR TO PAY HIS


    GAS BILL. EVEN AT 30 CENTS A GALLON IT WAS EXPENSIVE


    TO MAKE THOSE TRIPS BETWEEN EAST BERNARD AND


    EAGLE LAKE. AND HE HAD ENOUGH MONEY LEFT OVER


    TO BUY ME AN ENGAGEMENT RING.


    HE LEFT FOR VIETNAM JULY 6TH, I REMEMBER STANDING


    ON THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF HOBBY AIRPORT WITH


    HIS MOTHER WATCHING HIS PLANE DISAPPEAR INTO


    THE CLOUDS, BOTH OF US KNOWING BUT NOT SAYING


    THAT NOTHING WOULD EVER BE THE SAME. HE WAS


    KILLED IN ACTION DECEMBER 20TH, THREE WEEKS


    AFTER TURNING 21.


    MITCH BELIEVED WITH ALL OF HIS HEART THAT FIGHTING


    FOR FREEDOM IN VIETNAM WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.


    WE AS AMERICANS MUST PASS THIS LEGACY ON TO FUTURE


    GENERATIONS SO WE INSURE THAT THE WORDS


    GOD BLESS AMERICA WILL ALWAYS BE HEARD, LOUD AND


    PROUD.
