My neighbor who I looked up to as a kid. my first wake and funeral

Robert was my neighbor, in Shelton, CT and uncle to my friend Kenny. I remember him as a fun loving guy who used to make us laugh. He went into the Army and deployed to Vietnam. I so looked up to him. When he was killed in action in 1968, I was ten years old. My dad was an ex service man, and was attending Robert's wake service, and let me go with him. I look back now and realize how young he was to defend our country and give the ultimate sacrifice. God Bless and keep you Robert.
