I was in the C/1/7 Cavalry in Vietnam in 1967. I attended my first reunion this year (2006) at Louisville KY. It was great.

I didn't know Charlie, but I knew Tracy, her sister and her Mom. I am so sorry to hear about her passing. She had a great laugh, and raised a equally great daughter.

I am grateful to all who visit charlieblack.net and thank you for your interest! This site is a tribute to my father and a living history that all his survivors can take joy in visiting. While my mother Mary Black just recently passed away Dad is still survived by his two sons from his first marriage Michael and Patrick, my sister Charlene Moore in North Carolina and her two children, and his third wife, Priscilla Black Duncan who resides in Montgomery, Alabama. He has two living sisters, Jean and Ione and several nephews. I am married to Michael and we have two children. Michael is the person who began this site and who has worked so hard to maintain it over time and I thank him for it very much! Please, if you knew Dad and have any personal stories please share them through this guestbook.

I KNEW CHARLI BLACK AS AN UNSELFISH INDIVIDUAL THAT WOULD GO WHERE THE GRUNTS HAD TO GO. HE FOLLOWED US THROUGHOUT OUR TRAINING AT FORT BENNING TO VIET-NAM, HE WAS A HIGHLY RESPECTED NEWS REPORTER AND I HAD THE HONOR TO MEET HIS LOVELY DAUGHTER AND HER HUSBAND AT THE RICK RESCOLA MEMORIAL CEREMONY. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER CHARLIE BLACK.

I just read your article on Charlie Black. I was with the 1st Air Cavalry Division as a combat photographer and was on several missions with Charlie.
On one mission, which was supposed to be one day, we were stuck when the choppers failed to come to pick us up. That night it began to rain and I wasn't prepared for an overnight stay. All I had was my poncho that I curled up under. I happened to bed down next to Charlie Black. I was cold and the hood in the poncho was allowing rain water to drip through, making me even more miserable. Charlie, seeing that I wasn't doing so well, told me to get up, take off the poncho and get soaking wet with the rain. I thought he was nuts but he insisted. I complied. As it turned out, he knew that if I got my clothes wet and curled back up in the poncho my body heat would warm the wet clothes. Shortly after I crawled back under my poncho I warmed up and slept like a baby the remainder of the night. Charlie was a tough guy and it was a privilege to have known him.

Mary Edwards Black passed away on February 7, 2006 at the age of 81. My Mom supported Dad in all of his trips to Vietnam and helped to support the wives that were left behind whenever she could. LZ Mary was named for her by Col. Stockton. Mom lived a simple life and died peacefully in the town where she was born, Hayesville, N.C. She leaves behind many who loved her and will miss her greatly.
