Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Robert Joseph Kowalski, 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

The Philadelphia Inquirer - November 23, 1968

Chester Man, Once Wounded, Killed in Action

A Chester soldier who recently wrote home that the war in Vietnam was getting worse since the start of the bombing halt, has been killed in action, the Defense Department reported Friday.
Sp/4 Robert J. Kowalski, 20, of 2751 Forwood st. in the Highland Gardens section of Chester, was fatally wounded November 15 by enemy small arms fire while he was in an aircraft landing zone.
He had received an arm wound in July.
Sp/4 Kowalski was drafted in October, 1967, and was sent overseas with the 3d Battalion of the 7th Infantry on April 8, 1968.

WED ON LEAVE

While home on Christmas leave last year he married Linda Lewit, daughter of Walter and Rose Lewit of Chester.
He worked as a truck driver and in a factory before going into the Army. He was interested in automobile racing and did most of the mechanical work on his own cars, his wife said. He had raced in Atco, NJ, and in Cecil County, MD.

COUNTED DAYS

"He was counting the days until he got out of the Army," Mrs. Kowalski said. "He was down to 155 days in his last letter."
An older brother, Alfred Jr., is an Army veteran and the brothers met in Vietnam-Robert was arriving as Alfred was leaving.
Also surviving are his parents, Alfred Sr., and Marguerite, of Marcus Hook; a sister, Mrs. Anette Hickey; two half bothers, Joseph and William Boyle, and his grandmother, Mrs. Monica Kowalski.
