  • Thinking of you

    Hello, Bob, I think of you often. Although I did not know you, I did have the pleasure of meeting your parents and brother. Today is Veterans Day and I want to know how much you meant to our family. My son Matthew Robert Samsin Saxe was given your name. It was a promise we were committed to honoring. May you and your fellow soldiers from all our wars be remembered today and every day. Thank you.

    Robert is a Fraternity brother who I never met. He is a brother never the less. He is remembered and revered to this day in Sigma Beta Chi.

    My Dad, Jerry Saxe, posted this picture of his best friend, Bob here. As you can see in his post on this page, they were close friends. My dad doesn't mention his own service in his post, or that he gave me the middle name of Robert in honor of Bob. So I'm trying to carry his name on as best I can. I've seen his name at the actual Wall and the Travelling Wall. I'll always try to keep his memory alive.
  • Beloved Friend and Fraternity Brother

    The photo posted on the front page is not Robert J Goedde from Maplewood, MO. I have posted Robert's graduation picture from McBride High in St Louis, MO where he is dressed in a white tuxedo.
    I hope that whoever that is in the picture previously posted gets correctly identified. I graduated with Bob from high school and roomed with him for four years at St Mary's U in San Antonio, TX. Bob graduated from college in May of 1968.
    He was killed in a fire fight with the 1st Calvary Div in April, 1969. He is a hero and is still loved and missed by his friends and fraternity brothers.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Robert Joseph Goedde, 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, Sir
