I didn't know you, but I am from Texas and have the same birthday. The day you died, I was probably walking to class and enjoying the day in Austin, Texas. I can NEVER FORGET your service and sacrifice for us. Here's to all our absent companions. ;-)

I'am proud to have known Robert, in junior high school. The thing, that I remember most vividly about Robert, was that he had a very keen sense, of what was right. So many times I saw him step in, to stop something that should not, have been happening. As I recall, he quit school at about the time, that I knew him and I lost track, of him- but he was the type of guy, that you never forget. Every Veteran's Day, I tell my students what I know, about Robert and hope, that they appreciate the sacrifices, that he and his family made. If he were alive today, he most likely would not remember me, but I'am a better person, for having known him.

Please know, that you have, not been forgotten and always, will hold a special place, in my heart! It would have been nice, to have known, you, as a person and I greatly, appreciate your service! I just wish, you, did not, have to pay, so high, a price! You forever will, be a hero, in my eyes!

Never Forgotten

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heros you left behind...."

Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heros lost to the War in Vietnam:

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
