    Dear SFC Sammie Edward Alexander, 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

    Curt Carter

  • Final Mission SFC Sammie E. Alexander

    Posted on 2/22/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On May 17, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter CH-47C (tail number 67-18497) from B Company (Varsity), 159th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 101st Airborne was operating in Quang Tri Province (I Corps) when it was shot down. The aircraft was at level flight at 100 feet and 50 knots of air speed when it came under enemy fire. The helicopter was hit by at least five rounds, one which perforated the forward transmission sump and may have resulted in a hydraulic failure. The aircraft crashed causing fatal injuries to the five crew members aboard. They included pilots WO1 Phillip F. Arnold, CWO George C. Schultz Jr., crew chief SGT David W. Smith, flight engineer SFC Sammie E. Alexander, and gunner SGT Roy A. Petty Jr. [Taken from vhpa.org]

    Sammy, You were the epitome of a dedicated and classy soldier and person. Because of you guys like me felt safer and more comforted in knowing that somebody in that war was prepared. You were such a good man the Lord took you earlier than the rest of us. You are a HERO and I will never forget you. May God Bless your family and loved ones that they may know that you are with the Lord and "all is Well".
