Enlisted in the 7th U. S. Cavalry. Saw action at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. He was a private under Capt. Thomas Weir, Company C.

It was Weir and his men, possibly including Hetler that defied Benteens order and went out to attempt to reach Custer, only to be turned back by indians. Hetler fought out the remainder of the battle on Reno Hill, where he was wounded.

He was a carpenter by trade.
