Jack Schwarz Moves on to Fiddler’s Green

Posted on February 21, 2018



Jack Schwarz, a Proud Husband, Father, Grand Father and Charlie Trooper passed away on February 16, 2018. Jack served in C Troop as a Lift Pilot in 1970 and 1971. Lift pilots would quite often go into LZ’s and PZ’s to drop off or pick up our Blues while under fire from the enemy. When the Medivac Pilots would not go in to evacuate the wounded,  the Lift Pilots did. Jack also managed the Charlie Troop Web site for years. Jack will be missed by his biological family as well as his Military family. Jack got into his Lift Ship, took off and landed in Fiddler’s Green, meeting up with those who went before him and will now be in the line to “Present Arms” as each of us make our Journey.  RIP and a Slow Hand Salute.
