  • Final Mission of SP4 Charles G. Bobo

    Posted on 10/15/14 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On February 8, 1971, pilot WO Thomas P. Doody, aircraft commander CW2 Paul C. Stewart, crew chief SP4 Charles G. Bobo, and door gunner PFC John E. Robertson comprised the crew of a UH-1H helicopter operating about 10 miles from Lao Bao in Savannakhet Province, Laos on an insertion mission. During the mission, Stewart radioed the flight leader that his aircraft had sustained damage to the tail rotor by ground fire, and that he was returning to the pickup zone, which was about 5 miles inside the South Vietnam border. While the aircraft was en route, Stewart radioed that he had inverted and was going in, and nothing further was heard. The flight leader then observed a column of smoke coming from the crash site of the helicopter. The Cobra team accompanying the operation was dispatched immediately, but detected no signs of survivors in the area of the wreckage. Several burned remains were seen around the wreckage. It was determined thatthe aircraft had crashed, exploded on impact, and burned. The remains were identified as Doody, Bobo and Robertson. A fourth body was determined to be that of an ARVN on board the aircraft. No trace of Stewart was found. It could not be determined whether he burned in the crash or was thrown clear of the aircraft as it impacted. [Taken from pownetwork.org; image from wikipedia.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Charles Glen Bobo, 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

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 9/30/03 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
