Charles Tillou

(Sept. 25, 1958) -- Details have reached Nutley of the air accident which cost the life of 1st Lt. Charles Tillou, 24 son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Wesley Tillou of Rutgers Place, who was one of six Air Force men known to have been killed in a collision between an American transport plane and a French fighter plane near Paris.

The two planes; an Air Force C139 transport plane and a Mystero Jet, collided at Polsey on Friday with Lt. Tillou's wife, the former Miss Elizabeth Vandenberg, who had joined him in France, first learning of the air tragedy. She returned to this country by an Air Force plane soon after the accident and is now in Nutley.

Tillou was a member of the 41st Troop Carrier Squadron operating out of France.

Memorial services were conducted yesterday afternoon at St. Paul's Congregational Church and Evreux Air Force Base in France.

Lt. Tillou is the second Air Force officer from Nutley to be killed within a period of only three months.

In July, Lt. F. Paul Jannarone Jr., a pilot with the Strategic Air Command, was killed when a B-47 Stratojet bomber crashed into the side of a mountain in Vermont.

Lt. Tillou, a navigator, volunteered for the fatal mission. He was the navigator aboard the American transport plane on a flight from the air base at Evreux, France, to Spangdahlem, Germany.

Lt. Tillou entered the Air Force in January 1957, received his preliminary training at Lackland Air Force Base, in Texas, and received his navigator's wings at Ellington Air Force Base in Houston, where he ranked second in the flight school graduating class.

He was sent overseas last April and his wife followed him to France two months later. The couple had been married only 14 months at the time of the fatal air crash.

Lt. Tillou was a life-long resident of Nutley and went through the public school system, having been graduated from Yanticaw elementary, and Nutley junior and senior high schools.

He was one of the most popular students in the Nutley High School class of 1952. Lt. Tillou was outstanding both as a student and as an athlete.

He started at third base on the Maroon baseball team and helped bulwark Nutley to the final round of the 1952 Greater Newark Tournament and Group 4 sectional honors.

Lt. Tillou was honored by being selected for the All-County baseball team and also served as captain of the Nutley basketball team. For his success in sports, Lt. Tillou was singled out by American Legion, Post 70, as the "Scholastic Athlete of the Year" for 1952.

Tillou went on to Colgate University and continued to combine his scholastic and athletic abilities. He was president of his senior class at Colgate, was president of the Senior Honor Society and as selected for "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities".

In sports, Tillou went on to star in soccer, an activity he had never played until going to college. He became one of the best players on the Colgate team and was named fullback on the All-East soccer team.

Lt. Tillou is also survived by a sister, Miss Carolyn Tillou, at home, and his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Charles W. Tillou. He was also the grandson of the late Mrs. and Mrs. Charles Caldwell and the late Dr. Charles W. Tillou.

In life there are no coincidences.

At a business meeting earlier this month, I met Christopher C. Stout.

In room of more than 80 people, Stout and I sat next to each other.

Stout was to receive an award for Series Writing and Reporting for his work at the Ridgewood News‚ "The Hero Next Door." This series profiled the families of those serving overseas.

Sitting there, chatting, I learned that, earlier, Stout had written a series of articles on the men and women from Ridgewood, N.J., who died while in service.

I expressed my surprise that of all the people he sat next to, he sat next to me.

The compilation of that series and research resulted in his book, AT DEATH HE WAS 25 YEARS OLD, published by King of Spain Press.

His motives for writing the series were similar to the process to mine in compiling the Nutley Sons and Belleville Sons honor rolls. Stout, too, had looked at a war memorial in town and something inside told him to learn the stories behind the names.

Until we struck up a conversation I had only known of one other person, from New Jersey, also, who had done something like this. Robert Caruso's effort resulted in Verona Heroes

As these stories go, Caruso was researching the war dead from Verona and while researching Thurston Woodward who was killed in World War II came across my web site for the sailor whose family later moved to Verona.

Stout and I had a similar conversation that Saturday morning. We spoke of some men who were killed in the war and memorialized in more than one town.

It turned out that Thomas E. Ashton Jr. grew up in Nutley and his family moved to Ridgewood.

The young man's story was in the Nutley Sons Honor Roll and in Stout's book.

Another coincidence turned up concerning the Dec. 24, 1944, torpedoing of the Leopoldville. Nutley's Malcolm Christopher was on the the ship. Also aboard was Ridgewood's Thomas A. Cobb.

Sometimes I find that my sense of loss over the strangers that turn up in my books and these similarly-themed books is overwhelming. I swear to God I don't ever again want to write about the war dead.

And yet. As Stout and I compared notes he mentioned some sources I hadn't tapped. Some sources that might uncover the stories of my guys whose stories have yet to be told.

And I wondered when I might cross check our references and get on with this work, this work that comes from a deep, deep part of the heart.

West Point's tribute, etched in gold

By Greg Bruno
May 25, 2007

Times Herald-Record

West Point, N.Y — Even in good light, the numbers are hard to make out. A quick glance pulls the eyes toward a stoic bald eagle, an American flag, the class motto.

But take a closer look. Tilt the Class of 2007 ring ever so slightly, and the faintly etched digits begin to twinkle brightly: "911."

... Tim Allen, a senior from Nutley, N.J., chaired the committee that created the ring with the help of local artists. ...

Read the Story


Memorial Day Parade - Monday, May 28, 11 a.m.

Anyone who has seen the official township press release knows that the parade on Monday steps off at about 11.

What a lot of people in town don't know is that the Veterans Council - which includes the local chapters of national organizations including the American Legion, AMVETS, VFW and other groups - at about 9-ish begin a tour of the Nutley war memorials beginning at the American Legion on Franklin Avenue.

The group tours the more than one-dozen memorials across town with an entourage that ends at the American Revolution memorial in front of the high school, shortly before the parade line up begins.

In addition to marching in this year's parade, if you are so inclined, or standing along the sidelines cheering, this year, gather family and friends and be on hand at one of the memorials when the Vets gather to remember their fallen brethren.

Check out all the memorials in town.

Regarding Burt Hafkin

Regarding your web tribute to soldier Burt Hafkin, who died 18 Oct 1951 in Korea, member of the 21st Reg, 24th Infantry Division, which was not on Heartbreak Ridge.

The 24th ID was fighting in Operation Nomad-Polar, east of the Punchbowl/Heartbreak Ridge. They were trying to take Hill 770 and other peaks south of Kumsong the day he was killed. After the Allies broke the enemy in the Iron Triangle earlier in the summer, the Chinese had shifted their main operations eastward to Kumsong, which became one of the Chinese' main supply routes. Operation Nomad, although overlooked by most historians, was a brutal battle lasting from 13 - 22 October 1951. The daily average casualty rate was higher than either Heartbreak or Bloody Ridge.

Because Heartbreak was much in the news -- and overlapped Operation Nomad by two days -- it was a common mistake for newspapers to report casualties of Nomad as being part of Heartbreak Ridge, which was carried out primarily by the 2nd Infantry Division.
