I'm proud of our Vietnam VeteransPosted on 9/22/16 - by Dennis WristonCorporal Bobby Blake White, Served with Company B, 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, 196th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division.
Ground CasualtyPosted on 12/20/15 - by email@example.comOn October 28, 1971, four soldiers from 196th Light Infantry Brigade and a medic from the 26th Engineer Battalion drowned while on the beach at Chu Lai, Quang Tin Province, RVN. One soldier was swept away by the undertow and the four others drowned while trying to save him. All five were African-American. The lost soldiers included PVT Brent P. Cleveland, CPL David L. Jackson, CPL Bobby B. White, and SP4 Samuel A. Amey from the 196th, and SP5 Donald F. Vaughan from the 26th Engineers. Their bodies were recovered two days later. The soldiers were what Army ethnic code definition of the time referred to as “Negros.” That policy has since been changed to "Black or African-American" as the only acceptable terms for persons having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.

Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/17/14 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear CPL Bobby Blake White, sirMORE
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, Sir
