Eugene Majure, also fought in vietnam and did not return home. i think all of you men and women who were there deserve the best of everything. thank you so much for fighting for everything that i was taught to believe in.
Thank you for your dedication to our country, your fellow Special Forces, Rangers, Pathfinders and Airborne Soldiers will not forget.
Excellent webpage. The UTMOST respect to all the older Green Berets from a very thankful younger one.
I wanted to leave a message on your Guestbook, letting you know that your website was nominated for an award. I was my pleasure to check out your website and recommend that your site recieves the honor of this award. Thank you for all your wonderful work and for sharing the story of Robert and others on your webpages....
I served with both Fred and Bob in Kontum 1967-1968. Bob hadn't received the medal yet, but one day he told me that he was going to win it. I reminded him that most MOH's were awarded
posthumously. They were both great soldiers and good friends. Glad to see someone take an
interest in the almost forgotten.
An excellent portrayal.
A fitting tribute to Frank Miller and as well as the other brave soldiers of MACSOG and the Vietnam era. As an Operations Sergeant in MACSOG, OP-35 during this period, I am familiar with the actions of Frank Miller and Fred Zabotisky which merited them the award of the CMH. Both men represent the excellence of soldiering. I am proud to have served in the same unit as these two brave individuals.
Neil -- Great web site dedicated to one of our great heroes!! I flew with the 189th and 119th AHC's is support of SOG out of FOB 2 south of Kontum -- November 67 - January 68 and remember the incredible work they did. Many memories of flying in to Laos and Cambodia to insert teams and usually pulled them out under fire - I was shot down December 12th 1967 trying to pull one of those teams out. Bob Howard was one of the best but many others were also very brave and committed to the mission of SOG. Glad to see this site. I have a copy of John Plaster's book - "SOG The Secret Wars of America's Commandos in Vietnam" and his book "SOG A Photo History of The Secret Wars." You may find my account of the Easter Offensive 1972 - Battle of Kontum interesting.
Like a lot of others, I only knew him by reputation. I regret it was not personal.
I had the honor of serving with Captain Howard shortly at Kontum before he was reassigned to get his MOH and again as NCOIC of the Goat Lab while then Major Howard was S-3 of Training Group.
My honor and respect
Nicely done Neil, very informative.
That you accomplished that mission and lived is and was amazing.
Outstanding site dedicated to an outstanding man! Thanks! MACSOG's backdoor was Naked Fanny, commanded by Bill Shelton who has a web page on the NKP Site dedicated to those who did not return home. A memorial is being built at Nakhon Phanom to the Americans lost in SEA and will be dedicated by General Heinie Aderholt who began the Air Commandos and commanded the 56th Air Commando Wing/56th Special Operations Wing located there.
Knowing men like Robert Howard have served with
us, is a Great privilege. To him, and all our comrades, I say: "A job well done" and may God Bless and keep you all"
Feel that this is a really well done web site and should be highly disseminated.
