    Dear SP4 Robert Kendrick Chase, sir


    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

  • 2nd-47th Mech Infantry Honors Fallen Brother

    Posted on 1/3/11 - by Rudy Kaldi, Co C, 2nd-47th Mech Inf, 9th Inf Div Rudy@kaldi.net
    To Robert Chase, our 2nd-47th Brother: We who served so proudly with you want to let you know that we have established a Memorial Scholarship to honor your memory and the ultimate sacrifice that you and the other 195 brave soldiers of the 2nd-47th Mechanized Infantry made while serving our country in Vietnam in 1966-1970. Our wish is that this Memorial Scholarship conveys the highest tribute possible to each of you because it comes from the hearts of the soldiers who served with you. It represents the everlasting and inexpressible gratitude we feel for your sacrifice. We got to live the lives that you were deprived of, and this scholarship is one small way of expressing our sorrow for your loss and our appreciation for the magnitude of what you gave. Many of you brave young soldiers sacrificed your own lives to save one of us, and we have carried heartfelt memories of you for nearly four decades. This perpetual Memorial Scholarship is our way of being sure that the memories of love, honor, and respect we feel for you, our Panther Brothers lost in combat, will live on forever. [If you are a 2nd-47th veteran, or a friend or family member of one of our fallen Brothers, and would like more information about how to support or apply for our Memorial Scholarship, information is available at www.247scholarship.org ]

  • High School Friend & Team-mate

    Posted on 5/21/00 - by Ken Roberts kenrob@juno.com
    Bobby Chase was one of my best friends. He was a great kid. I teach U.S. History at the high school level, and I always include a few stories about Bobby when I talk about Viet Nam. I have so many great remembrances of Bobby, but the two I tell my classes are as follows.......
    Bobby was the goalie on our high school soccer team. We had an important game coming up, one that could mean a championship season. As I recall, the day before the game, Bobby's Dad passed away. It was a shock to all of us. The next day, game day, Bobby was in school as if it were any other day. We couldn't believe it, and when I asked him why he was there, he simply shrugged and said "Big game. I can't let the team down. My father would've expected me to do no less." THAT was Bobby Chase. Principled, dedicated, and a great friend. It was that same sense of duty that led him to go to Viet Nam, much to the dismay of his Mom, Bea Chase. As I remember the story, when Mrs. Chase confronted Bobby with her disapproval, Bobby said "Dad served his country in WWII, Dick and Larry (his older brothers) served their country, too. Now it's my turn.
    Bobby Chase was a terrific guy. I have a rubbing from the Wall in front of my classroom for all my students to see and appreciate.
    He is still with me every day.
