Thank You Larry

My 70 year old dad recently told me about a few guys he grew up with who went to war and never returned home. You were one of them. He has fond memories of you, and said you were always smiling. By the time I arrived here on earth, you were already gone for four years, but I met your brother Herschel (may he RIP) when I was a child. He and my dad worked and hung out together. Hershel was always cheerful too. I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your courage, bravery and service. Salute!

Ground Casualty

SP4 Charlie L. Wilder was an Aircraft Powerplant Repairer serving with A Company, 15th Transportation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. He was stationed at Bearcat Base near the city of Bien Hoa in Dong Nai Province, RVN. In the early morning of February 23, 1969, SP4 Wilder was asleep in his hootch with 13 other soldiers when Bearcat began receiving enemy rocket fire. The first projectile hit the flight line about 300 yards away. About 10 seconds later, a second rocket went through the roof of the hootch and struck Wilder in his bed, killing him instantly. Four others were injured, three of them critically. A medivac arrived and evacuated the wounded. Wilder’s remains were removed and transported on a second helicopter.
