I Remember

I was the forward observer that was assigned to Sgt Kahler's squad the night we were attacked by a Viet Cong platoon while guarding the bridge on Highway 1 near the town of Sa Huynh. It is my understanding that he drew the first fire, giving his life, which alerted us we were being attacked and allowed us to overcome the Viet Cong. He was the first casualty for Company A, 1st Battalion of the 198th Infantry Brigade as we had just landed in Viet Nam 8 days earlier.

lost cousin

We found your name on the Wall at North Carolina. An older half-sister remembers you and we are so glad to have found you. I'm so sorry you had such a short life. I read you lost a baby girl, Brenda at just 2 mo. not long before you went to Nam. I'm amazed at how much you look like my husband, your cousin. We'll remember you in our prayers and family lineage now. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten or remembered lightly. Our love to you and your little family who lived down the road. May your service always be rewarded.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Charles Edward Kahler, 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

your deeds are not forgotten

We had only been in country seven day's when you were taken. I'll never forget that night at Duc Pho, and how your death hit all of us hard. You were a good man Charles, may you rest in peace. Your deeds will not be forgotten.
