May God bless your family and brothers-in-arms in your death. the impossible has happened - just like the deaths of Colonel Millett and Chaplain Grady Spry we are left speechless. Colonel your life gave meaning to the word patriot. Your death is a grave loss to America at a time when patriotism is waning. I am thankful to God that He allowed us to have you for a season. We're better people because of you.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Thank you for keeping me free. God speed.

Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Trained to live, off nature's land
Trained in combat, hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage deep, from the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her this last request

Put silver wings on my son's chest
Make him one of America's best
He'll be a man they'll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret

America has lost one of its true heros, someone that cannot be replaced but will serve as model to future service members.

His story is in the long tradition of selfless concern for their fellow soldiers by countless other military members, known and unknown. May he rest in peace.

While serving in Kontum CCC I was truly inspired by the tales of Col. Howard. He is a true hero and will be missed by all his brothers

Your loss is felt across the brotherhood of those who have soldiered in harm's way. God be with you, my friend, on your new journeys that lie ahead. America has lost a true hero with your passing. My prayers are with your family and close friends.

A real National Treasure. America is a lesser place without COL Howard.

America has lost a true hero. Bob Howard served his country with dedication and valor during an exceedingly difficult time. May God bless him and keep him as he joins his fellow vets, especially the men of MACVSOG, in eternal peace. I was privileged to have met him during the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982.

I met him once in Montgomery, Alabama in 1999. A wonderful gentleman and a good patriot. May God be with his family. He will be dearly missed.

It has been an honor to have known COL Howard (MOH). He was a great soldier and a great American who was never really given the recognition he earned and paid for with his own blood. RIP SIR!
I want to thank the web master Neil Horn for providing me with photos and a lot of good advice while I was developing "THE TRIBUTE VIDEO" on the front page.
Without his help I doubt that I could have completed the project. THANK YOU NEIL for what you did for me and for all you have done for the COL! You are truly a dedicated and great American!

Sorry to learn of his passing, he was one of the great ones.

Our message is brief, cannot even come close to the recollections of those who fought with CPT Howard, and is from RGR 3-78, FEB (in Dahlongega, GA) 1978 -- the coldest in the East Coast in 40 years. We'd "known of" CPT Howard and his heroism, as plebe Cadets at West Point, starting 1973. We never dreamed, though, we'd "walk patrol" with one such as him, in Winter '78, in Dahlonega. We knew he was there when our WP class -- the infantry amongst us -- started Ranger School in January. When we got to Dahlonega, our RGR class was already down about 40 percent -- frostbite, cheifly, along with assorted other injuries. Now, we'd known CPT Howard was the "Mountain" XO, and we feared e'er crossing him. Then, one bitter cold afternoon, our platoon formed up for patrol -- and "Howard" was scratched out on the chalkboard; he would "walk with us." The wind was howling as we walked down the woods to the patrol start point -- nervous as hell, that this time, "the man" would be with us... and out of the shadows walked CPT Howard. You could hear a pin drop. Moreover, as we huddled with each other against the cold, there he stood, in fatigues and nothing else (and no outer, "hot" gear), carrying just a pair of gloves. He would not put them on, nor anything else, for that matter, for 36 hours... as we traversed up-and-down the Tennessee Valley Divide. He spoke little, slept not at all, led by example, and rallied us as nobody ever had before. We were, at the risk of sounding "cliche," simply in awe of the man. Mind you, the temperature never rose above -20, and the winds howled for days. It never surprised us, though, that this warrior shrugged off the elements as he did hales of bullets in S.E. Asia (and woundings), time and again -- treating these, as he did the wounds, as inconveniences, more or less. We are blessed -- and awed -- to've known him. Rest in a well-deserve and hard fought, peace, RGR Howard. Respectfully, R Masi; rmasi@rand.org, RGR 3-78.

In this day and age when the term"hero" has lost much of its meaning due to over and indiscrimainate use, it seems almost trite to apply to Bob Howard. But for those of us who knew him, he, and a few others, actually defined the term. More importantly, he was a great man among men - and warriors. Despite his lack of recognition, that is his legacy. He will continue to define what it means to be a real hero. His passing will not diminsih that. But the world is a lessor place without him.

I am so very proud to just recently learn of Lt. Col. Robert Howard of his sacrifice and dedication to our country. Also sadened by the lack of public recognition he has received for the many things he's done..even up to a few months ago. Truly an american hero. We will all miss him. Sir...I salute you!
