Rest Dear Charley!!

Charles and I grew up together in Polo,IL. His sister was in my class, 2 years ahead of him. He and I worked together for a time and then both ended up in Nam in 1968. I was an Army Xray Tech at an Evac Hosp in another part of Nam when he was killed in the 10th month of my rotation. In my spare time, I packed dead Soldiers for Graves Registration and was always fearful that I would get a person I knew. It did not happen. I did not know he had died till some time after Nam. May God Rest the Soul of this very gentle person!! I have visited him at the Wall several times.

I was there.

The medics stopped working on our relatively minor wounds (me and Larry Carpenter of 1/8th Infantry) on Firebase 29 when Charles was brought in to the aid station. The medics both did their very best trying to save his life; but, his neck wound was just too severe. The next day, the three of us were flown from the firebase to Dak To basecamp. We were accompanied by Short Round, the camp mascot (dog). Roughly two weeks later, Larry and I returned to the firebase, which was about three "clicks" (3000 meters) from the tri-border area (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos) overlooking one of the Ho Chi Minh Trail's entry points into Vietnam. This was also not far from the Ben Het Special Forces compound. I hope some of this gives a clearer perspective on Charle's death.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Charles Edward Hazlip, 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
