‘Kentuck’

Phil had been my point man for just a couple of weeks when he was ambushed during a patrol. Very positive and ‘get it done’ kind of guy.

Remembering Phillip Creech

Hi Creech,

Forty seven years ago to the day, I remember when we lost you like it was yesterday. It was a very sad day for all of us in our unit. You had recently received a photo of your newborn baby and shared it with all of us. What a proud dad you were. And rightfully so for what a beautiful baby, a baby you never got to hold and cuddle but loved as if you had, which made the day all the sadder. Regardless of the added risks to yourself you continued serving as our "point man" on patrols. And by doing so you lost your life but saved the lifes of many of your comrades on that fateful day 47 years ago. We are forever grateful to you for your heroism and sacrifice for each of us. Because of you many of us returned to our country and led full, productive lifes. Yes, we enjoyed the full benefits of living free in the US including having, holding, loving and raising our own babies.

In all the turmoil, chaos and unbelievable fear while extracting you from the ambush zone I never took the time to properly bid you farewell, and to thank you with all of my being.

Thank You and Farewell Creech, Rest In Peace, I think of you often

Elmer L. Eide

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Phillip Gene Creech, 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
