Thinking of CA

I was a year behind CA at The Citadel. In my knob year, he, Rick Repole, who was also lost in Viet Nam, and Pat Daugherty, recruited me for the sport parachute club and team. CA trained me, jumped with me, and, with Rick and Pat, celebrated my first jumps with a prop blast ceremony. CA was a class act and loved jumping and his school. He was a great friend and was all about helping others.

I never knew you but I will never forget you.

I wore Carter Howell's MIA bracelet for many years; until it broke in half. I still have it in my jewelry box. My thoughts and prayers continue for his family and loved-ones.

Rembering Carter

Carter, my first cousin, saved my life from drowning in the river shortly before he was shot down.
I still have picture of his F4 Phantom jet on my office desk. When asked about it, I always relate the life saving story and how he gave his life for our freedom. He will always be my Hero!

Remembering Carter

I was Carter's pilot training classmate at Selma AFB, AL. He was well respected as the best natural pilot in the class. He had an infectuous sense of humor and a gentle soul. He was always there for those who were struggling with the training program. I have his name rubbing framed and on the wall facing my bedroom door. It is the first thing I see every day I awaken. Never forget him--he gave the last full meaure for his country, and for us.

The picture that shows as first in this memorial photo series is not Carter, but his back seater, Stephen Rusch, who has in the same s F-4 that was shot down over southern Laos. Stephen's remains have been recovered, bur Carter has yet to be found and returned home.
