Last Known Activity
MSG (R) Vladimir J. (“Mike”) Mohar, a Decade-Life member of Chapter XXXIII, Special Forces Association, passed away on Friday, November 6, 2009 in the Dorn VA Medical Center, Columbia, SC. He was 76 years old.
Born in Yugoslavia, Mike was one of the original members of the 10th SFG(A). He was well known as an outstanding radio operator and an accomplished linguist: he was fluent in five Middle European languages and conversant in at least two others. Because of his extensive knowledge of the European area, languages and customs, he spent the majority (15 years) of his Army career in the 10th SFG(A). However, he also served a tour in the 77th/7th SFG(A) (to include service in Laos as part of the WHITE STAR MTT), and a later tour with the 5th SFG(A) in RVN. Mike retired from the Army with over 24 years service.
Following his retirement from military service, Mike started a second career with the United States Postal Service with whom he served for 18 years.
Surviving are his wife of 52 years, Georgine; their sons, Michael and Steven; daughter, Cynthia; three grandchildren; sisters, Yvonne and Donna; brother, Cyril and wife, Alice.
His funeral service will be held at noon on Thursday, November 12, 2009 at the Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel, 3926 Devine Street, Columbia, SC 29205-2804 (Tel: 803-771-7990).
Visitation will begin prior to the service at 11 a.m. Following the funeral service, the family and friends will proceed in convoy to the internment service to be held at the Fort Jackson National Cemetery at 1:00pm.
