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.

If any family member or friend reads this blog, please contact me as I am looking for personal stories about this brave man.
