    Reading all of what you, his fellow soldiers, said I am so touched that all of you thought so much of him but why wouldn't you? Bob and I were briefly married and too very young to make such a commitment but he was my first real (as a teenager) love....I did love him dearly and he me but we were from very different backgrounds and a year a half after we married, we lost a baby boy....Then he was drafted and no one that I know encouraged him to go to Viet Nam but he was there and the rest is history.....After all these years, I still have such strong feelings for him..Love you Bob---

  • Final Mission of SP4 Robert E. Baldwin

    Posted on 11/26/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SP4 Robert E. Baldwin was a rifleman, carrying an M-60 machine gun for 3rd Battalion (Airborne), 506th Infantry (Currahees). On February 6, 1967, his unit was participating in a combat assault near the Phu Bon Hamlet in support of an ARVN element. When his squad leader was wounded and pinned down in an open area in front of a large gray pagoda by Viet Cong forces, SP4 Baldwin bravely brought fire upon the concealed enemy. While standing in the open, firing his M-60, an enemy rocket-propelled grenade hit him in the chest, exploding and killing him instantly. His squad leader, SGT Paul H. Cline, also lost his life, and over thirty U.S. soldiers were wounded in the hostile action. [Taken from the book My Gift to You by Jerald W. Berry]

    The black and white military picture of Robert Baldwin came from the book MY GIFT TO YOU, which includes the stories and pictures of American soldiers who died in Vietnam while serving with the 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry (the Currahees), 101st Airborne Division. The pictures were allowed for use for the Faces Never Forgotten project by the author and fellow Currahee soldier Jerald "Jerry" Berry.

  • Although I never met you, I feel that I knew you...

    Posted on 1/11/14 - by Christina May Hoover
    I never met you Mr. Baldwin, I feel as though I knew you. I wasn't even born yet but my Dad, Walter Van Lee a fellow Currahee knew you well. He speaks of you often. Every Veterans Day and Memorial Day he mentions you. Thank you for your service dear fallen soldier. My dad misses you deeply and I miss you even though I never met you. Thank you for your sacrifice sir. My sad but grateful tears fall every Memorial Day for you. I will never forget you.

    If you hadn't been there my dad would have probably been killed and I'd never had been been born and never known your story.
    So grateful,
    Christina May Lee (my birth name) born to my daddy's loving arms, Walter Van Lee on May 24th 1985

    Anyone who knew him or served with him feel free to email me at minpin1985@gmail.com
