September 18, 1967 — Jay, Florida
Robert came from a large family of 8, he was the 3rd born. He had a brother close to his him in age, both were drafted right our of highschool, but the Army would not take his brother due to assma. It was hard on all of us ecpeically my mom to watch the evening news, sense thay would show dead bodies laying everywhere. My brother was on the front line in a 7 man team. It was hard on all Amercian soilders to be put in a place like Vietnam compared to the USA. My mom would send him care packages with any and everything she could think to send him, that included cotton socks and underwear.. They were wearing wool sock in high humid tempatures.
