Final Mission of SFC Robert L. Cooper

SFC Robert L. Cooper was a combat engineer assigned to Alpha Company, 86th Engineer Battalion, until he was moved from Dong Tam to Binh Phuoc in November 1968, when he was assigned to 2nd Platoon, Delta Company, 86th Engineer Battalion. SFC Cooper was in charge of all bridge building on Route 108 between Tan An and Binh Phuoc. His unit had constructed a pontoon bridge on May 20th which was later destroyed by insurgents. While cleaning up the wreckage using gaff hooks, there was one piece that that they couldn't hook to. When SFC Cooper went to hook it by hand, the piece moved a little and a booby-trap detonated, destroying his lower body. Despite the best efforts of medics, he only lived for about 10 minutes.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SFC Robert Lee Cooper, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
