Ernest D. Burns was assigned to Charlie Troop on April 29, 1968 and was Killed in Action on July 14, 1969. He was awarded the following for his bravery: Air Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnamese Campaign Medal,  Vietnam Service Medal, and a set of Flight Wings. Ernest was a Pilot of an UH-1B Helicopter.

I personally knew Ernest Burns. I was an enlisted infantryman and he was a Warrant Officer so I called him Mr. Burns. He was one of the friendliest, happiest and sincere men I have known.
