Thank You

Dear Sgt Clyde Rhinehart, Thank you for your service as a Cannon Crewmember with the 1st Cavalry. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The fall of Afghanistan reminds me of Saigon. It is very sad. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Two-Seven Mike

We all knew Sgt. Rhinehart as "Two-Seven Mike" (27M), a reference to his job as an enlisted Forward Observer (FO). It was his task to call in artillery for our unit when we were in the field, so he was an artilleryman attached to our infantry unit, "A" Co., 1/8 Cavalry, First Air Cavalry Division. He was very good at what he did, but I think he was most appreciated for his gregarious personality. He was always fun to be around and a good conversationalist. On 11 Feb. 68, when we were on LZ Pedro in I Corps, the NVA launched multiple 122mm rocket attacks, including one on this LZ. The DSJ dryly reports for this date, "A [Company] FO, 27-M was hit while in his bunker by a rocket. The individual was KIA." This was a classic case of bad luck. His loss was sorely felt by us all.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Clyde A Rhinehart, 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
