Last Known Activity

In VIetnam, 1st Lt. Bob Doten served with the 545th Transportation Company (LT TRK) (5T)

Bob and I met in first grade at El Centro School, and we immediately became best friends.   His family lived just down the street (Columbia Street) from mine, and we were in Indian Guides, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts together.  He was a bright, sunny person, and a loyal friend.  I was never happier than when I was with him.  His family moved from South Pasadena to Dover, Massachusetts just before our Senior year, and we corresponded - though not frequently - after that.   Bob went to Bucknell, was in ROTC, and after college graduation went to Vietnama where he lost his life on January 4, 1971.   I think about him every March 13, which was his birthday.   And, of course, on Memorial Day.   I still miss him
