We flew

Met Bill at Lane Ahp and at LZ English where we worked together and flew together. Sat through rocket attacks and did a scary mission pitching flairs one night. Was in a different part of country when 396 went down.I miss him and the pilots everyday,they were my brothers in a time of conflict and never flinched at the hell around them.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP5 William Allen Peyton, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Oh, Bobby

My cousin, Bobby, was about 5 years older than me. The last time I saw him, Bobby was getting ready to head to basic training. He was tall, grown, and handsome.
He died in 1970. His parents mourned every day for the rest of their lives.
