  • Remembering Robert

    Posted on 4/12/19 - by Jonathan Polansky
    I served with Robert in the 101st in Vietnam. I remember the night, and the firefight, when we lost him. Our platoon was broken hearted. He was a friend and a brave leader. I have always kept him in my heart.
  • Never Forgotten

    Posted on 7/17/18 - by Maryann Dixon
    While trying to remember significant moments in my life I came upon this site that I never knew existed. Reading through the remembrances I found the one left by my great niece and it brought me to tears. Her grandfather was my brother-in-law. Bob once drove me back to NJ from Chili, NY were I was visiting with my cousin. Those were a treasured 6 hours we spent chatting mostly about my sister. His love for her was obvious to me. His sacrifice for family and country must never be forgotten or thrown away by a reckless, despicable president.

  • Thank you!!!!

    I was in 6th grade, 11 years old, when you were killed. I remember my parents going to your funeral. I remember the sorrow that went along with this tragedy.

    Fond memories of listening to Yankee games with Robert and his dad in the "Piffard yard"., trading baseball cards, and playing a night ball game w/ broken Mantle bat. '60-'64.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Robert Nicholas Prete, 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
