Mark was Medevac'd and taken to the 85th Evac Hospital at the Phu Bai Airstrip where he died. I have attached a photo of his chopper where it crashed.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear WO Mark Wendell Minear, 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, Sir

  • My Sister, now with our Brother

    It was so hard on my sister and I when Mark was killed in action so many years ago. Sadly I find that I must deal with missing her now as well. Knowing she is now with Mark makes me smile. I'm still earthbound, screwing up, as usual, for their entertainment.
