Bobby, the years have rolled away so fast but your memories have stayed in my heart. So often I think of you and how much fun we had growing up. The family talk about you alot. We remember how much you wanted to fight for our country and when you got out you wanted to be Minister. The war took you away from us, but you will be here in our hearts as long as we live so until we meet on the other side. Rest in Peace. We love you.

Comrade in arms
So We Don’t Forget

He came in country a week after I did, so (to me) I was no longer the new guy. He was a nice guy. Quiet, with an easy smile and manner. We were in different squads and I never knew him real well but he was friendly and easy to be around when our paths did cross. I had left the field the month before but heard that he had been killed. He left a lasting impression.

Not forgotten

I met Robert the first day he arrived in the LRRP’s and I tried to convince him to reconsider another profession, he was so young. I was on patrol the day he was killed and will always carry with me the thought that if he had just listened to me he might be still alive, I will always carry that in my heart forever.

Remembering the day.

Robert I wanted to let you know I haven’t forgotten you and on 1 August 2002 I thought about the day you were KIA. I have never forgotten the little time we had together in Vietnam. Sleep well my brother you are not forgotten.
