Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Robert William Neher, 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

Assistant gunner

Bob was kia 01 29 68,along with Lester Kinard.He died trying to get to Kinard after Kinard was shot.The company had been pinned down in rice paddies.Helicopter gun ships were brought in and they placed enough fire power on the gooks,that they reported them running away.We quit recieving fire from the bunkers.Lester and Bob volunteered to go up and check the bunkers out.Having not received any resistance we carelessly approached a bunker assuming it was empty.Lester was right in front of the bunker door,and was shot in the stomach.He fell in a canal,and got hung upside down.Bob jumped into the canal and fired off a quick burst from the 60,The very second he stopped he was hit I believe in the head.I unloaded 16 rounds into the bunker untill someone pulled me away.I'm sorry,I should have done something to keep them alive.These are the facts the best I remember them.I have lived this day for 45 years.Why Not Me?

We Were Best Friends at Lincoln High School

Bob Neher and I were best of friends at Lincoln High School in 1965, the year I graduated and we helped develop the Mt Hood Meadows Ski Area in 1965 and 1966. I was drafted 16 Nov 66. We camped at the location and built up quite a friendship. Bob did write me while I was in Vietnam and told me that would probably be the last time I would hear from him.
He was my best friend in High School and I miss him to this day! He was awesome!!!
