    My name is Delbert D Parrish. Bobby,I and Edward Lindsey were good friends while stationed at Ft. Polk La. When we arrived in Viet Nam we were assigned to the 9th Inf. Div. But different units. I did not know both were KIA until I returned
    to the states.I know they are surely missed by all that knew them.
  • My Brother

    Bobby Jack Pappan was one of my older brothers - it has been so long since his death it is hard for me to remember a lot of details - but I know this much - I loved him and still do. There aren't many days that go by that he doesn't come to mind! His silliness, and that smile of his - but yet his willingness to serve our country - do give his life for our freedom. I will always miss him.

    Dear SGT Bobby Jack Pappan, 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
