REMEMBRANCES

  • Her name is Betty

    My mom, Betty, was Bobby’s girlfriend. His death shook her entire world. As a child I remember the cedar box she had of all his letters, pictures and mementos. I wish Bobby knew he actually brought our family closer. We met one of his platoon mates, David Arocha, years ago and he has helped my mom piece together “Al’s” time in Vietnam. He has never been forgotten.
