    Bob was the self-made high hurdler of the 1967 Woodruff track team; tireless worker, unselfish teammate, likable to all. It was my great privilege to have known you.

    Dear PFC Robert Lee Butler, 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

    Bob Butler, a student trainer at Woodruff High School , and a genuinely all-around nice guy. Like all others, so sad that you were lost while serving your country. I had the privilege of seeing your name when I visited the wall. - a very somber and humbling experience. Condolences to your entire family, and especially to your brother, whom I also knew.
