Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Robert Eugene DecelleII, 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

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Robert Eugene DECELLE II, USA...who died for our country!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

I knew his family.

I knew Bob's older sister, Karen. She was a good friend of my girlfriend & I visited the family home on several occasions. He was a very nice young man as I remember him. It is sad to see that he was lost in the Vietnam war. I also served with Karen's husband in Montana & rode with him back to Calif. to visit our girlfriends. I served with the Air Force in Vietnam (70-71) & very much identify with my fellow veteran's (both dead & alive). Rest in peace, Bob.
