  • Grandview Cemetery - Pasadena Texas

    Posted on 9/24/15 - by Dennis Clark dclarkrp@gmail.com
    I never knew Bobby and know of him only because he is buried feet from where my grandmother was buried in 1964 at Grandview Cemetery in Pasadena, Texas. My folks have 3 more plots there and I am to be buried in one of them. He was seven years older than I so it isn't inconceivable that our paths may have passed in this neck of the woods had it not been . . . . It is a true Honor to be buried next to a true Hero who have his life in Service to his country - and in doing so gave up so many years of his own. Next time I go out to the cemetery i'll take a picture of his grave and post it.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/13/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SGT Bobby Joe Bonin, 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

  • Your Angel Day

    Posted on 10/25/09 - by 60's Girl
    Mere words cannot express my thanks to you for your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice that you made so that others might have their freedom.

    Although there are others who feel the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war I am one American who feels that what you did for your country was not in vain but has been and will always be an influence for good for generations to come.

    Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing up for what was right and for paying the ultimate price.

    In your honor today on your Angel Day I leave this short poem for you:

    “There is not greater love than this.
    There is not a greater gift that can ever be given.
    To be willing to die, so another might live.
    There is not greater love than this.”
    ~ Steven Curtis Chapman
