Thank You

Dear Sgt Bruce Stickel, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The 47th anniversary of the last battle of the war just passed. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Never Forgotten

I have your medals and will always look after them. Found pictures of you from your high school yearbook, a group photo of you and your buddies in Vietnam and sadly the crash site from that fateful day that took your life. Wish I knew more about you. You are never forgotten.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Bruce Jacob Stickel, 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

A Note from The Virtual Wall



According to the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots' Association database, which is derived from Army Safety Center records, UH-1D hull number 64-13526 was one of three aircraft on a troop drop-off mission. The first two aircraft in the flight departed base at about 1210 and proceeded toward Fire Base Lynch in Phuoc Tuy Province; 64-13526 was delayed by 2 to 3 minutes and the pilot intended to take up a distant trail position. Instead, as the aircraft cleared the barriers it lost power. The pilot started a shallow left-hand turn to return to the PZ but struck a 110-foot-high tree at about 75 feet above ground. The Huey fell at a 60-degree angle, impacting in a right-hand descent some 75 feet from the tree. Although the fuselage did not break up, there was a fire. Seven of the nine men aboard died in the crash:


68th AHC aircrew:


SP5 Karl W. Titus, Middletown, NY, crew chief, and


SP4 Michael G. Warnick, Bartlesville, OK, gunner.



Passengers:


SSG Leroy Williams, Greenville, MS, 498th Med Co;


SGT Bruce J. Stickel, Federal Way, WA, Bravo 322nd Infantry;


SGT David F. Tinsey, Huron, MI, Bravo 322nd Infantry;


SGT Jimmy W. Westbrook, Sanford, CO, HHC 322nd Infantry;


PFC William I. Allsbrook, Tarboro, NC, Bravo 322nd Infantry; and


one Vietnamese, rank and unit unknown, V. T. Bui.
