Remembering Wisconsin’s Fallen: WO/Helicopter Pilot Glenn E. Nowakowski

The WMC honors U.S. Army Reserves WO and Helicopter Pilot Glenn E. Nowakowski, who was killed in action on July 22, 1972 in Binh Dinh, South Vietnam. He was lost after his Cobra attack helicopter was hit by small arms fire during what became known as the “Helicopter War.”

WO Nowakowski was awarded The Purple Heart, Air Medal, The National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Vietnam Campaign Medal.

Nowakowski served with fellow helicopter pilot Bob Hesselbein, who is trying to get a small monument placed in Arlington National Cemetery to honor helicopter pilots and crew lost in Vietnam.
