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

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Lee Charl HITCHCOCK, USAF...who made the ultimate sacrifice

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

My Comrade

As an AFOSI officer already assigned to Saigon, I met Lee at the airport there upon his arrival in South Vietnam, and assisted him before he departed for Danang AB. He was a tremendous officer with limitless potential. I've never forgotten Lee or his family. God bless them all. My dad was killed in World War II.

Our friend and neighbor. . . .

Lee and his wife, Carol, were our neighbors and dear friends at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ, before he was sent to Viet Nam. We were all young and idealistic, and eager to do whatever we could to make the world a better place. Lee made the supreme sacrifice, and for this we are forever grateful.

Body Guards

On 3 September 1967, Lee and I served as personal security for a visiting Senator or Congressman, named Murphy, from New York or New Jersey. Mr Murphy was on an inspection tour of polling places in the Pleiku city area during the Republic of Vietnam's first National elections. This was the only time I worked with Lee. The few times I was in his company, Lee was always friendly and personable. Farewell Comrade - Rest in Peace - Sgt. Eugene P. Petrowski, U.S.Army, Co. B, 504th MP Bn., 1966 - 1968.
