My Classmate

Carter (CA) and Inwere classmates in M Company while Citadel cadets. We were good friends and both on the Sport Parachute Team. I last saw him in November, 1970.
I was attending Pathfinder School at Fort Benning and he was finishing up flight school at Craig AFB, Selma, AL.

His unit flew support for us in the 101st Airborne Division.
I learned about his being lost from another Parachute Team member, Joe Brown, when I came back from RVN.

He was my squad sergeant

Carter Howell was my squad sergeant during the first months of knob year at The Citadel. When I was ready to call it quits he came to my room, talked to me man to boy, and gave me the encouragement to stay.

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.
