Paying respects to a great man.
Thank you Bruce for what you did for us. Bruce has a memorial bridge named in his honor. I am writing a book to honor Bruce and sixteen other men from my community who died in Vietnam. If anyone reading this knew him, please contact me.

Fond Remembrance of Ltcol Bruce A. Jensen
Although over forty years have passed, I have fond remembrance of Bruce Jensen. I remember the conversations we shared with coffee about home and family after you returned from missions.

Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

My diary entry from that August day in 1967
"Picked up Lt Col Jensen (A-26 Commanding Officer & Jonathan Winters brother-in-law) and gave him a ride to the BX. (He was walking to the nearby Tactical Unit Operations Center for his mission briefing.) First thing he said was that he was going on his next-to-the-last mission tonight. We talked over how nice it was to be about finished. I guess it was his last one, as his airplane disappeared and did not return."

The A-26s that flew under the callsign Nimrod were the most effective truck-killers along the Ho Chi Minh Trail until the AC-130 gunships came on line.
I was a FAC at Nakhon Phanom from 7 Feb 1967 to 5 Jan 1968. During that time the squadron was authorized 12 A-26s and lost 5 aircraft with only one crew surviving. We lost 2 A-26s in Northern Laos over 4 nights in August 1967.
Lt Col Jensen was a great leader of a great unit.
