REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/12/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear WO Robert L Pruhs, 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

  • Final Mission of WO1 Robert L. Pruhs

    Posted on 6/20/13 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org

    WO1 Robert L. Pruhs was a pilot with 71st Assault Helicopter Company, 145th Combat Aviation Battalion operating in the Long An Province. On October 14, 1966 he was piloting U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 64-13796 in support of ARVN troops pinned down by heavy VC fire. As his aircraft sought to reinforce the 30th ARVN Ranger Company, his helicopter came under small arms (AK-47) fire, receiving at least three hits, one of which entered the cockpit area and fatally wounded WO1 Pruhs. The aircraft was able to continue flight. [Taken from vhpa.org]
