  • Final Mission of 1LT Terance M. Bozarth

    Posted on 8/13/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    1LT Terance M. Bozarth was a fixed-wing pilot serving with the 220th Aviation Company (Reconnaissance). On January 22, 1968, 1LT Bozarth was the pilot of a Cessna 0-1F Bird Dog accompanied by a Marine artillery spotter and flying in support of 1st Battalion, 5th Marines in heavy contact with North Vietnamese Army regulars at the Hue Citadel. Bozarth’s aircraft was constantly fired on by anti-aircraft (AA) weapons during the mission, but he stayed on station marking targets for fixed-wing air strikes. The weather was bad and worsened, forcing Bozarth to fly lower and lower and risk the AA fire. He continued to mark targets until hit by AA fire. His plane crashed and he was killed. His air observer was badly burned but survived. Bozarth’s remains were recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/1/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear 1LT Terance M Bozarth, 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
