CAPTAIN IS KILLED WHILE ON 3D TOUR OF DUTY IN VIETNAM

Capt. Robert Carl Beckman, serving his third tour of duty in Vietnam with the Green Berets, was killed in action near the Cambodian border on Veterans Day, the Defense Department announced Friday.
His mother, Mrs. Robinson D. Harley, of Kenilworth Apartments, Germantown, was informed of his death Friday. She asked friends to send contributions to the Friends Peace Committee in place of flowers.
It was all Mrs. Harley would say about the war and her son, a five-year Army veteran and graduate of Davis and Elkins College in West Virginia.
Capt. Beckman, during two years in Vietnam, won the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart and the Army Commendation Ribbon. He began his third tour after a leave in August.
Survivors, besides Mrs. Harley, are his stepfather, Dr. Robison D. Harley, chief ophthalmologist at St. Christophers Hospital for Children; three step-brothers, Robison Jr., Halvor L. and William Wallace Harley; and twin stepsisters, Heather Harley and Mrs. Ardee Lloyd.

Always remembering

I was one of Bob's platoon ldrs in the 82nd in RVN. Bob was simply competent. He never lost his cool in bad situations, always mindful of minimizing causalties. Many men are alive today because of him.
