To My Uncle

I never met you but your picture hung on my parents bedroom wall. My father was your brother Ted. I always looked forward to the day I would follow him and you and serve our great country. I’m proud to say that I did and loved every minute of doing so. As I said I never met you but am proud to be able to call you my Uncle Bob. Look forward to meeting you some day standing next to our Lord and my father. Your nephew, Michael.

I have never forgot you or the day I learned of your death
POSTED ON 9/18/17
Robert (Bob) and I served together at Cannon AFB. Bob was my crew chief and we had many great times together. He and his wife treated my like a son. We both received our orders to go to Vietnam, although not to the same base. We continued to write to each other until he was taken from us.

I have thought of you every time I think about my service time and visited the wall and shed many tears looking at your name.

See you soon Bob,

Sandy, my cousin Charles Parsons was taken from us that day. We are planning a memorial for all the men who died that day. The total deaths were 91.

We want to honor our cousin, your father and the others on this anniversary along with meeting family members who have suffer their own lost. We would appreciate your help and input.
Sincerely, Monica Popham
