Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Randall Wayne Ernsberger, 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

Final Mission of U.S. Army helicopter UH-1C tail number 66-00538

The crew of U.S. Army helicopter UH-1C tail number 66-00538 consisted of pilots 1LT James E. Pavlicek Jr. and WO1 David E. Thomas, crew chief SP4 James E. Anderson, and gunner SP4 Randall W. Ernsberger. On the early morning of November 3, 1967, they were on a night gunnery run supporting a ground unit being overrun when their aircraft came under heavy hostile ground fire. The helicopter, possibly damaged from the ground fire, flew into trees and exploded and burned. Personnel in a wing gun overheard 1LT Pavlicek scream “pull out” 2 ½ times before they hit. Witnesses in the wing gun reported that the crash may have been caused by either target-fixation or a shot-down. Despite being at night in haze, the visibility in the area was reported to be good at the time. All crew members of 538 suffered fatal injuries in the crash. [Taken from vhpa.org]

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

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
