Congratulations to Bob Howard on a job well done! He makes me proud to also have served in Special Forces.
Good work, Neil. Enjoyed the site. A moving tribute.
This is a site that the world should see.
met Bob Howard at CCC (Kontum) in 1971 when he had returned to Viet Nam.
Since then I have Seen and talked to him at the Medal of Honor reunion in
Pueblo Colorado. Yes, he was and still is one hell of a soldier. Less we
went through Infantry Officers Basic Course at Ft Benning in1969/70 with
Bob. He is really a great guy who never tried to take advantage of his
background. To me that is the mark of a true hero. I am honored to know
him and thankful for soldiers like him.
very nice tribute. Many of us from the "old days" of 1964 to
1968 are forgotten. I served in 1966-67 when SOG was not even mentioned. I
am proud and honored to have served with such a great group of guys.
Honor, Integrity and Pride, our way of life. We were REAL HIPpies!
site. Definitely a "sharer" with others.
I met Major Howard while attending the "Q" course in 1981. He was the real Special Forces soldier. He had experienced and lived the life we only could read and dream about. He set such a high standard for all of us to try to achieve. He kept control of the young and sometimes immature cadre at Camp McKall at that time. He and I had numerous talks while I attended Phase I. Major Howard left an impression on all he came in contact with. It was a pleasure serving in the same unit with a man of his caliber. I wish him well in all he does.
went through the "Q" course when MAJ Howard ran Camp Mackall,
now that beat selection any day!!

served with Robert Howard when he was the executive officer and the
commanding officer of Recon Company. At that time, I was the team leader
of RT New Mexico. I consider him to be one of the finest officers that I
ever served with, Bob is a soldiers soldier and a mans man. He is indeed
the real deal and I feel honored to have served with him.
web site, keep up the outstanding work, would like to see more added to
it, plan to keep it handy, was sent to me by a good special forces
great tribute to a great warrior, it's a shame military people like Robert
and others like him are not brought to the public attention in a manner
they would never be forgotten. But you find most ex-military personal that
stepped above the bar in their performance of duty are very quiet about
their past and yet these are the hero's the kids of today should be
looking up to. As a good number of our sports and movie hero's of
today don't set a good standard to follow.
do not recall Col. Howard from Special Forces, but sometimes people slip
by. I spent l5 years in SF from the original 10th, 1st,7th,77th,46th,and
retired in l968. It is possible we passed in the night somewhere.
you have made a fine tribute to The Best of the Best in Special Forces.
Bob is still serving his country and his Brothers in Arms thru the
Veterans Administration in Korea. You have worked very hard and the
Excellence of your work should be viewed by as many Individuals as
possible...Class AAA Site. De Oppresso Liber Neil Jerry
