  • Final Mission of LTC William H. Bordner

    Posted on 11/24/16 - by
    Phu Cat Air Base was constructed on the coastal plains of central Vietnam by the Red Horse civil engineering squadrons of the USAF. On February 15, 1966, an initial survey was being conducted of the new air base on Hill 151, an elevation rising out of the plain one kilometer west of the future site. During the survey, LTC William H. Bordner, a USAF civil engineer officer serving with Headquarters, 2nd Air Division, 13th Air Force, was killed when he triggered a phosphorus mine planted on the hill by enemy forces. LTC Bordner was taken to the 85th Evacuation Hospital where he died the following day. To honor his memory, the main thoroughfare of the base site was named "Bordner Boulevard," and Hill 151 became unofficially known as "Bordner Hill." [Taken from and]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/8/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear LTC William Harold Bordner, 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
