I married Robert January 26,1968. I was two months pregnant with our son when he was drafted. He was only in Vietnam less than two weeks when he was killed at Firebase Henderson. He went in ahead of his comraades. I have a letter expressing Thanks for his sacrifice from a lady whose brother who was saved on that firebase. Robert and I named our son after him and he insisted we call him Robbie after a dear friend of ours from Wichita Falls, Texas Robbie Sargent who was killed in an accident in Colorado. His son Robbie now has three children and reside near me. Robert attended Henrietta High -School were he ran track and played football #52.
