Robert and I were good friends at Fort Rucker. Robert went to the 176th AHC in Nam and was killed in action in December of 1967. I went to the 129th AHC and came home May 1968. I found out some years later that Robert had died. Happy Birthday on the 23rd of April and God Bless You, Brother! Slow hand salute...

Robert, here I am again buddy, thinking of you on your birthday. It's been 41 years since we last talked at Fort Rucker.
If anyone has a photo of Robert, I'd appreciate a copy.
