Still thinking of you

I remember the good times we had at the enlisted men's club at Sand Hill, Ft Benning, GA. before we shipped out to Vietnam with the 2/7th. We were best of friends right up to the end and and I think of you often, even 50 years after your death at LZ Albany in the Ia Drang Valley on November 17, 1965. We were resting after the column halted, and then the ambush by NVA was sprung. We were separated when the shooting began and it was the last time I saw you. You remained MIA for several months before your remains were recovered on the battlefield. If we had somehow not become separated you might be alive today. I have a little memorial arranged with pictures of buddies KIA in Vietnam and your picture is in a prominent place where I can see it whenever I pass it. RIP my brother . . . .

Kenny was my cousin, raised on a small farm on the outskirts of Auburn, PA. We grew up together and over the years found him to be a kind and loving person.

As an only child, his parents were always very proud, yet it came as no surprise when they were informed that he was "missing in action," as he had never handled a gun of any sort prior to the military; he had no interest.

He has and always will be missed be all his family and friends.

NEVER FORGOTTEN......

HHQ, 2/7th Cav, 1st Cavalry Division (1965-66) You will always be remembered, Kenny. I recall the good times we had at Fort Benning, Georgia before shipping out to Vietnam in the summer of '65 - training together, beers at the EM club on hot summer nights. I was with you in the final minutes of your life during the ambush at LZ Albany on the afternoon of November 17, 1965. We were separated when the shooting began and that was the last time I saw you alive. I think of you often and the good times we had at Fort Benning and 'Nam and all you missed out on in life. Rest In Peace my friend.......

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Kenneth Charles Bolich, 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
