A Time To Remember

Bob was the first person I met when I arrived at the Newport Naval Hospital in September of 1967. Being from the Midwest I had not associated with anyone from the east coast before. I was in my cubicle sorting out some clothes. There were about 6 or 7 guys at the end of the barracks playing cards. I didn't pay any mind to them but then I looked up and there was one of them standing there looking at me and he said, "hi I'm Bob Aucoin" and said to me in his Massacheusetts accent, " we are playing hots would you like to play" I had really no idea what he was talking about and I said "what", he said we are playing a caad game hots would you like to play. Then someone yelled, he means we are playing the card game hearts and your welcome to come down and play too. Well I shook his hand and walked down there and introduced myself and they did as well. I was stationed with Bob for the next number of months at the Naval Hospital. Bob was a good Corpman. but more importantly he took the time to realize I didn't know anyone and was courteous enough to come down and introduce himself. In short he had an awful lot of character. I have never forgot him and while visiting the Vietnam wall last January stood there and remembered this encounter with him. I must say tears welled up in my eyes. He gave his life for another just as he was trained to do but we lost a very special person that July day in 1968. I went to Vietnam the following November of 1969 but was fortunate enough to be able to return. As the years have gone by and I watched my children grow I often thought of this polite young man who was the first person I met at the Newport Naval Hospital and thought the world would have been a much brighter place had he lived. God bless you Robert J Aucoin and I hope you are winning some "hots" games in a better place.
