College Friend

Lee and I were college friends and roommates at Purdue University as well as fellow AF officers. I was his escort officer on his return home from Vietnam. He has a permanent place in my heart. Rest easy my good friend; I will never forget your sacrifice.

Thank You

Dear Captain Lee Hitchcock, Thank you for your service with the 7th Air Force. Yesterday was Flag Day. There is no better way to respect the flag than to honor you all. Watch over the USA, it still needs your strength. Rest in peace with the angels.

Lee's widow passed away

Carol (Barnfield) Hitchcock was widowed upon Lee's death in 1967. She married Robert Scheibe in 1969 and they had 2 daughters and 3 granddaughters. Carol died February 22, 2017 after an 11 year battle with breast cancer.
After Lee's death, Carol treasured his flag, posthumously-awarded metals and most especially their wedding bands and photo album which she showed off just days before her death. She maintained contact with the Hitchcocks, and grieved the deaths of Lee's parents and a brother. Three weeks prior to her death, Lee's surviving brother, Craig Hitchcock, flew to visit Carol at her home in Topeka, KS.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Lee Charl Hitchcock, 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
