Your Christmas Eve Birthday.

Remembering Hans this Christmas Eve, as it was also your birthday. Today you would have turned 75. Still so hard to believe you've been gone so long. But you were and will never be, forgotten by those who loved you. Like me, your sister.

Hans touched many lives in a short time

We moved next door to Hans and his family about 1966. I only knew Hans as the cool, older guy next door who drove a car and was always running in and out of his house. One day I was playing in my driveway and he paused on his way into his house and gave me a smile and wave. As a eight or nine year old that made me feel pretty special... the way he made his sister feel who I later fell in love with and married. The smallest gesture can last a lifetime.

50 years ago our lives went dark

Today marks 50 years since Hans’ passing. All friends knew him as “John.” I knew him as the best older brother any girl ever had. Used to run to him if I thought our mom as after me for something. He would protect me, even though I had it coming. So proud of his service to our country, and proud of all who served. You remind us what true sacrifice is, and how we can never repay you. But what we can do is pray for you and your families.

Ground Casualty

PFC Hans W. Brunner, SGT Kendal R. Kruse, and SP4 Abra J. Wolfe Jr. served with 3rd Battalion, 6th Artillery, 52nd Artillery Group, based at Camp Saint Barbara (Artillery Hill) outside of Pleiku in Pleiku Province, RVN. On March 30, 1968, the three cannoneers were in a military vehicle after being extracted from a patrol mission when a grenade on a soldier’s belt was accidently detonated. PFC Brunner and SGT Kruse were killed in the blast. SP4 Wolfe was taken to the 71st Evacuation Hospital where he expired shortly thereafter from fragmentation wounds he sustained to his head, chest, and legs. Brunner was posthumously promoted to corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
