honoring you.....

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a great worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement and, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while caring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

Final Mission of A2C Lonny L. Mitzel

On January 9, 1967, an AC-47D “Puff the Magic Dragon” gunship from the 606th Air Commando Squadron, 56th Air Commando Wing, 7th Air Force operated on a night time mission for a target near Duc Pho, Vietnam. Closing in on the target, the airplane was hit by ground fire. A fire erupted aboard the aircraft which resulted in the pilot being unable to maintain control and caused the airplane to crash. The seven lost crewmen included CAPT Charles W. Robertson, 1LT James D. Goodman, MAJ Joseph E. Wilkinson III, SSGT Raymond Medina, SSGT Cecil T. Thompson, A1C Dana R. Kelley, and A2C Lonny L. Mitzel.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear A2C Lonny Leroy Mitzel, 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
