Bob Payne --- Hero

Remembering my college classmate and friend, Marine Corporal Robert Paul Payne, A Co, 3rd Antitank BN, 3rd MARDIV, communications officer, Hampshire, Illinois. Born December 17, 1943 in Traer, Iowa, he graduated from North Central College, Naperville, Illinois in 1966. Mortally wounded by a direct mortar/artillery hit on the communications’ bunker on March 11, 1968, he died March 18 in Quang Tri Province, South Viet Nam, which was located near the DMZ. This was about a month after Phase I of the Tet Offensive (January-February 1968). Fighting in the province, usually referred to as the Battle of Khe Sanh, was brutal. Between January and July 1968, more than 750 Marines were killed and almost 5,000 were wounded. He is buried at Buckingham Cemetery in Traer, Iowa. RIP, Bob.
