Remembering An American Hero

Dear GMG2 Robert Warren Andrews Jr, 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

R&R with Robert

Today, December 10, 2013, I learned for the first time of Robert's death. I am dealing now with abject sadness and remain stunned at this news. I was looking-up another GI and just by chance, his picture jumped off the page.
I met Robert at Camp Alpha (the R&R processing center) in mid-March of 1969. Robert was in the Navy and I was an Army infantryman with the 25th Div stationed N.W. of Saigon. Fate had brought us together...both of us were headed to Manila for five days. We struck-up a conversation the night before and became fast friends. We spent the entire time together and had rooms at a hotel on Rojas Blvd. directly across the hall from each other. After R&R, we never saw each other again...he went back to the Delta and I returned to the jungle.
I remember Robert as one of the kindest GIs that I had ever met. He told me about his Riverine experiences and I related stories from a "Straight-Leg" Army unit. We laughed a lot and had a reasonably good time...that didn't last long enough.
If any family members are available, please contact me. Please know that I share your grief...albeit 44 years later. I am so sorry for your loss and can't accurately articulate my thoughts at this time.
Most sincerely,
Sp4 Mark Cheresh (phone: 805.750.6552)
PS: I have a photo of Robert and me in front of The Aloha Hotel on Manila Bay.
