honoring you.....

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Noel Bruce Witmer, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Final Mission of U.S. Army helicopter OH-6A tail number 67-16543

On May 10, 1971 this aircraft from C Troop, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division was on a mission in the Thua Thien Province (I Corps) when it came under hostile fire. The helicopter was raked with small arms fire (AK-47), taking four hits which caused it to crash and burn, destroying the aircraft. The two crewmen, aircraft commander CW2 Clayton W. James and crew chief SP4 Noel B. Witmer, were killed on impact. A passenger, SFC Ervin B. Cherry, survived the crash but succumbed to his injuries 20 days later. [Taken from vhpa.org]
