Wall of Valor

Second Lieutenant Robert W. Hockelberg

Army Air Corps Pilot


May 14, 1945

Awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for extraordinary achievement while participating in more than one hundred hours of aerial flight over territory of Burma where exposure to enemy fire was probable and expected. Flying unarmed cargo aircraft, Lt. Hockelberg and crew members brought troops, supplies and heavy equipment over hazardous mountain terrain into the forward areas. Their devotion to duty and degree of efficiency, above and beyond that normally expected reflect great credit on themselves and on the Army Air Forces of the United States.
