If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Robert Paul ACFHER, JR, USAF...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, perchnace, may therein comfort you.

My Brother

It has been 38 years since we lost Robert to the disregard of life inherent in armed human conflict. He was always a brave man but like most brave men faced wiith real danger, engaged the danger knowing fear, wanting to live, but willing to act because of who he was inside. I have always imagined when thinking about loosing my brother how immediate it all must have been making the decision with his crew to fly back into the storm of battle to aid soldiers fighting for their lives. I wish I knew what their words were to each other as they re-engageed after they were almost safely back to base, having survived another mission. Robert died on my first day of medical school. He would have become a physician like our father had he survived the war. I miss who he was and who he would have been if he had lived. I miss the conversations we would have had and the family he and his wife Sheila would have raised. I miss that my children know him only through my stories. I miss his physical presence in my life and what life might have been like if he were here. He was and always wil be my brother.
