Bless Captain Kuhlman

Wore my bracelet for years with Captain Kuhlman’s name on it. After the war, I had hoped he was among those that came back. Alas, not to be, but you are Forever in My Memory. Will not be forgotten....

Final Mission of 1LT Robert J. Kuhlman Jr.

At the beginning of 1969, North Vietnamese Army engineer units maintained a number of major in filtration routes into South Vietnam. Among them was Route 922 which paralleled the Laotian border and entered South Vietnam south of the Song Da Krong Valley, becoming Route 548. The North Vietnamese were determined to maintain and defend Routes 922 and 548. The volume of anti-aircraft fire increased during this same period. Allied aircraft on armed reconnaissance, interdiction, and direct support missions reported heavy 12.7mm, 25mm, and 37mm anti-aircraft fire with airbursts as high as 16,000 feet. On January 17, 1969, a USMC A-6A Intruder (#152586) from Marine All Weather Attack Squadron 242 (VMA[AW]-242) was conducting a night direct air support/armed reconnaissance mission when it was shot down by 37mm antiaircraft over the northern A Shau Valley. The squadron conducted both visual and electronic searches, but the plane and its pilot, CAPT Edwin J. Fickler, and navigator, 1LT Robert J. Kuhlman Jr., were not found.

Bracelet and prayers

I also still have the POW bracelet with Captain Robert Kuhlman's named it. I wore it for years and prayed for him and his family daily. I did not know until recently that he was also from Indiana. I appreciate his sacrifice as well as the sacrifices of so many others.

Forever faithful

Yes, still wearing the POW remembrance bracelet.....from 1970 ! Visited the Wall and cried at seeing the name of this hero I have never met, but who has been with me always through the happy times and the sad times of my life. A life ended too soon, but with great impact to those who had the privilege of acquaintance, and those who did not.
