He was my brother

He was the best kind of brother. He had my dad sign a permission form so he could join the Army early so he could send my parents most of his pay for his six sisters and one brother. He sacrificed everything for us. I love him, miss him and think of him often. I was just 13 when he was killed. If you knew him please contact me through my email so I can learn more about my brother.

Ground Casualty

SP4 Robert B. Michalk served with the 363rd Transportation Company. On January 7, 1971, he died while transporting ammunition when an explosion destroyed the Allied munitions dump at Qui Nhon, Quang Nam Province, on the central coast of South Vietnam. The blast was attributed to enemy action and destroyed at least a third of the munitions in the dump at Qui Nhon. It was labeled the worst ammunition explosion in South Vietnam in two years.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Robert Bruce Michalk, 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
