    Thank you, George! I have been haunted by the details of Bobby's demise for all these years. Glad to hear this news in my Golden Years (or, some say "rust" - 69 yrs old). While I didn't go to Nam I did USAR as a Radio Operator for 6 yrs. My thanks for your intimate news and for being there. God bless.

  • "He was my patrol partner"

    He volunteered to come over as a replacement from a unit in Germany. I served with Bob in the 1st Infantry Division. He was killed by shrapnel from a roadside bomb. It was a sad day for me and the event has had a lasting impression on me. He was happy when he died, doing what he loved. I will remember him forever as my friend.

  • Think of you til this day, 57 years later

    He was my partner in the Red Cross Sr. Lifesaving course. He was also an Eagle Scout with 7 others from the same Troop 21 (see photo). He is top center and I'm top left. He was obviously the tallest of us early teeners!

    Strong and able, always willing to help the less strong like me at the time. His mother was the salt of the earth and I would go to their house lots of times. Sadly, she also lost her older son to cancer about 2 years later. God bless, my old friend. I miss your smiling face.

    If anyone has more info on Bobby please advise.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/4/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Robert Wayne Andreasen, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
