Sir,
I have never met another man or soldier that inspired me as much as this great "Hero" did. He was my father figure and role model at an important time in my life. I served with Captain Howard as the first enlisted volunteer, of Aco 2/75 Ranger BN, from Oct 1974 to Aug 1976. He took me under his wing and made me a fighter.
I am so happy you put your talent and efforts into creating this site for "my hero" also. I feel so fortunate to have served under him and experienced his greatness. After he left 2/75 I got out of the Army for 11 years. I so missed being around people like him and some of the others at 2/75 that I re-entered the Armed Forces. I am happily serving today and doing my best to be an example to others. 
Those first two years at 2/75 under Captain Howard and other great leaders helped mold me into the man I am today. I know he has affected many others in a similar way throughout his 36 years and with this site he will continue to inspire. Wish I could meet him again. Great job! 
Sua Sponte! RLTW!

I had the honor to meet and serve with Colonel Howard in one of his last assignments as COMSOCKOR 1988-1990. At the time I was the Commander of B company, 2nd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group(A). I saw him again in January 2002 in his current role with the VA in Korea. I have always been impressed not only by his past heroics, but at his humility and kindness to all. It is a good thing to honor a hero like Colonel Howard while he is still living. Thanks for your good work!

Served as E6 with USASFV(Provisional) and 5th Group for 25 months from 1964 thru 1966. Another 12 months in 'Nam 1968-1969 as an E7, plus assignments to 6th SF Group and 7th SF Group, and JUWTF(Atlantic). A fine web site dedicated to some fine soldiers, most of which I am proud to have served with. Hoisted more than a few drafts with Zab at the Main Stag Bar at Bragg, and at the Coast Guard canteen and the VFW here in Saint Petersburg. 
Hallowed memories!

Hi Neil-I spent that last night in country talking and drinking with Bob in House #10, Saigon, Lionnel Pinn (Housemeister) would not allow he or I to go downtown, I had no Civvies and Bob was to fly out next morning to receive his medal. He didn't want it at that time, all he wanted to do was go to town (smile). Great site for a true soldier and real man. I have not seen Bob for many, many years as with another two heroes: Fred Zabitosky and the "super soldier" Lionnel Pinn. 
I served with the 7th,10th,SWC,3d,8th,5th and LBJ.
Beautiful tribute, very well organized and done with good taste.Our ranks are thinning and everyday above ground is a good day.

Neil,

Forgot to tell you, "Great job" on Bob. I was with SOG in 64-65 with COL Russell. Also at Kontum in 68-69 with Bob. On RT Hawaii with Bill Hanson and Bill DeLima. Also worked with Ralph Rodd on RT Colorada. Spent all of military career with Group from 54 to 74 when I retired. What can be said for the men that served with SF that has not already been said. I just want everyone to know that the Medal of Honor flag is now official. It took some time to get it done but all living Medal of Honor recipients will be receiving one of these flags in the near future. What a great group of men to have know or worked with from the 5th.

Hi,

Great Site...Its about time we honor these warriors of the Special Operations Command. The American public has absolutely no clue what they have done for the country and I am sick and tired of watching all the athletes, entertainment people, or even politicians getting all the credits and honors.

To the all the men of SOG and special operations, Thank You....and to all the SOG MIA/KIA, we remember......

Great Site about a Great Soldier. But then, Bob Howard never took a back seat to anyone. He gave more than he had and received less than his worth. Health, happiness and good fortune go with him.
