Corpsman Prayer
Creator of the sea, air, and land,
protect us with your mighty hand.
For just causes do we save,
guard us as we treat the brave.
Keep the Marines within your care,
that liberty we all can share.
When at length my call is run,
let work for God and country be done.
Comfort loved ones left behind,
may eternal life they find.
By power of your Spirit restore,
corpsmen who died in peace and war.

He was my friend and shipmate

We serviced together on the USS HAVEN,in Long Beach, California. We had lived near each other in Montana, he in Harlem, I in Lewistown.We did not know each other then, we were two young men a long way from home and getting ready to go further. I will always remember the look on his face when he got his orders, he had a look that only some know!!!!!!

OUR BROTHER ROBERT

ROBERT GRADUATED FROM HARLEM HS IN 1965 AND JOINED THE NAVY FOLLOWING HIS BROTHER TED.
SEPTEMBER 18,1965 HE MARRIED SHIRLEY HOCKHALTER. THEIR SON ROBERT W. JR. WAS SIX WEEKS OLD WHEN HIS FATHER WAS SENT TO VIET NAM IN THE FALL OF 1966. AS A NAVY HOSPITALMAN 4-C HE WAS PART OF A CONTINGENT ATTACHED TO THE MARINE CORPS. HE WAS TAKING CARE OF MARINE CORPS WOUNDED ON THE BATTLEFIELD WHEN HE HIMSELF WAS INJURED JAN. 1, 1967. THIS DURING ONE OF THE ALMOST 200 CLASHES THAT MARRED THE NEW YEAR'S TRUCE IN VIET NAM. HE DIED EIGHT DAYS LATER.
THOUGH ROBERT LIVED ONLY 20 YEARS, HE MADE AN IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF ALL WHO KNEW HIM. HE HAD AN OPTIMISTIC VIEW OF LIFE AND A FANTASTIC SENSE OF HUMOR.
WE HAVE ALL MISSED HAVING HIM SHARE THE REST OF OUR LIVES, BUT AS LONG AS WE LIVE, SO WILL HIS MEMORY.
WE LOVE AND MISS OUR BROTHER.
