I learned of SOG while visiting the Veteran's Museum in Chehalis, WA. I am inspired by the courage and valor of the men in this unit. Hand to Helmet and Semper Fidelis.

We should allways acknowledge and show respect for the men and women of the Armed Forces. COL Howard is one of our real hero's showing great courage and bravery in his actions to save his other soldiers. The media whould wake up and give time to the unspoken Hero's of the military.

Sir, I wish we could have met in IRQ or AFG but I guess we were never in the same place at the same time. Rest well my friend in the knowledge that you truly did your duty to God and country 1000 times over.

Semper Fi,

I had the privilege of being led by, at the time by Major Howard as commandant of Camp McCall. He was the Ideal Special Forces soldier. No man impressed me more and I had the opportunity to meet all of the surviving SF Medal of Honor winners from Vietnam at a fund raiser for the SF museum.

I remember on one 12 mile ruck with 65 pound rucks and full combat equipment, we had 2 M60's per team that we would rotate carrying. I got the M60 early and no one would or could relieve me, many cases of heat stroke that day. I had to carry it for most of the ruck and started to fall out of the formation. Major Howard hung back with me as I struggled for miles, he finally asked me respectfully "do want me to carry that 60 for you son" I yelled no sir and somehow found the strength to catch up and then carried that 60 for the whole gut busting ruck. I think I earned his respect that day, as a week later he ignored the team leader and said to me "seems like your loosing a lot of trainees this class" I replied "just separating the wheat from the chaff sir" and I saw him smile for only the second time.

The first time I saw him smile was at the initial briefing at JFK center. He was welcoming our class of 278 to Camp McCall and stated casually that "he could jump off this podium and kill half of us with his bare hands and the other would kill ourselves trying to get out the door and escape". He just looked at us and smiled and every single one of us believed him without a doubt.

He was a man of honor, integrity and high moral fiber he never swore or yelled just provided us with an example to aspire to.

When he got to heaven... St Peter had to say how did you earn your living, how did you earn your pay? I earned my living as a Special Forces soldier down on earth there wasn't a Soldier that was bolder. If Colonel Howard contacted me from heaven and asked me to parachute into hell, my response would be..."I will get my gear sir".

I felt I needed to stop by and visit to pay my respects on Veterans Day. It feels like it was a week ago and next month it will be 3 years since he passed. I will always miss him. R.I.P. SIR!

This man spoke at my son's OCS graduation at Ft. Benning, Georgia. I will remember him as the most impressive human being I have ever met. You can keep your other heroes. He died within the year so he was probably battling sickness as he spoke to the new young officers.

Those days and times of Vietnam were terrible. Most of all the behavior of some of our fellow Americans towards those who were there and fought is really, in retrospect, incomprehensible. It is hard to accept that during many of those years an irrationality crept into the American mind that looked upon our soldiers not as our own but as the enemy. Today looking back there is just no way to understand how so many in our nation turned not just against the war but against those who served. Your web site about Robert L. Howard is a powerful repudiation of those attacks upon our soldiers. The tape recorded interviews made by Robert L. Howard and other MOH holders brings these men into a deeply needed visibility. It should be a requirement in every High School to hear and see the accumulated MOH records and recordings.
I can only say thank you very much for making this web site. It is deeply appreciated as was Robert L. Howard. Anyone who heard his voice knows he was a powerful force for our nation.
May his voice continue to be heard. To his family I say thank you for giving him to us. Kenneth Ellman,, Box 18, Newton, NJ 07860

It is people like this that made our nation great, but it is a shame that more people don't know about our hero's and the sacrifices they made. RIP COL Howard
