Ground Casualty

On November 21, 1968, a U.S. Army helicopter OH-23G (tail number 64-15303) from the 198th Infantry Brigade was conducting its pre-flight run-up for a reconnaissance mission to assist the 1st Marines in setting up nighttime ambushes. While preflighting the aircraft on the headquarters pad at 1st Marine Headquarters in Da Nang, Quang Nam Province (I Corps), RVN, the helicopter was hit by an enemy 122mm rocket. Both the pilot, WO1 Gerald M. Ortego, and the crew chief, SGT Joe H. Stanley, suffered fatal injuries in the incident. The door gunner survived with wounds. [Taken from vhpa.org]

Miss you and think of you daily

Joe, you were and still are my best friend. Such wonderful memories I have of us growing up together at Aurora. I made it through the battle of Vietnam, through the grace of God I am still here. I wish things could have been different my friend. I miss you and think of you often. I know you are walking on the streets of gold in heaven. Till we meet again my dear friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Joe Harry Stanley, 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
