Colonel Robert Frank, USAF (Ret.)

I was Gen. Vogt's "senior USAF logistics officer" as a Major when he commanded Allied Air Forces Central Europe in the mid-1970's at Ramstein AB, Germany. I had many opportunities to work under his command during those extremely difficult days when the future of European allied air power effectiveness was on the line, and war in Central Europe was a very serious threat to the free world. Gen. Vogt's personal skills and leadership abilities were truly a gift from God. He was the right man at the right time for our organization.

Few, if any, could have matched or exceeded his remarkable leadership and command results (and I had the opportunity to see others try.)

I look forward to meeting him again in heaven as I have no doubt he was welcomed as a good and faithful servant.

Late though this is in his memory I chanced to read of his passing and it brought back a need to respond in thanks for having the great courage to send a massive SAR up north in June 1972 to get Roger Locher out after he was shot down. Thanks to a great general and hero.


David J. Weeks

I was Gen.Vogt's crypto maintenance NCO at Nakhon Phanom RTAFB. I had the upmost respect for him as our air war leader and as a gentleman demonstrating grace while under extreme pressure. It was an honor to support him during the Vietnam War.

Patricia Vogt Reed

Uncle Johnny was my fathers big brother, and my father admired him greatly. My father, Robert W Vogt, always said how difficult it was to follow his smart brother through school. He will be missed.

Stanley K. Baker

I served with General Vogt as we downgraded 7th Air Force to United States Support Activities Group USSAG-Task Force Alpha at Nakhon Phanom, (NKP)Thailand. I briefed him nearly every morning, one-on-one (early) on the status missions. He was a mentor, coach, and an example for me to model my career - a true leader whose light will continue to shine in those whose lives he touched. Thank you, sir!

Dear Kathie,
I was so sorry to hear of the General's passing. I have fond memories of visiting you and the General when our brother, Bob, was graduating from the Naval Academy - sleeping on the boat, strawberries, the warmth of your hospitality, the laughter. I know how much you and the General mean to my mom and dad and to our family. He will be missed. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Gen. John and my father Gen. Phil were very close and John gave such a wonderful eulogy for my Dad when he died. I so enjoyed John and Kathee in Melbourne, and my Mom was a frequent visitor to their house. I was always welcomed into their home. May all the pilots now fly free.

I served as a messenger courier for Gen. Vogt after he took command of Seventh Air Force Vietnam. I truly respected him for the integrity he displayed in his responsibilities as a servant to our country. May God bless his family.

General Vogt and Kathie opened their home to me and other family members when they lived in Annapolis, MD and I was attending the Naval Academy from 74-78.
