Charles D. Sonnkalb Jr.

Posted on April 4, 2010


Charles or David as he was known by was assigned to Charlie Troop on May 9, 1968 and was Killed in Action on August 16, 1968. I served with David. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word for all. The picture is of David and Colonel Charles Sonnkalb Sr. as David’s dad swore him into the Army. David was a Pilot of an OH-6A Observation helicopter. David was awarded the Purple Heart, Air Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and a set of Army Aviator Wings.
