Thank you all!

Hearing from Bob’s combat veterans is heart breaking! It’s been more than fifty years! I knew Bob at Geneseo. I got drafted and after two years got out an SGT, E-5 with no in-country service. Why wasn’t it me, it could have been. I am proud of Bob and his service! Today, I wish it had been me! God bless you all!

Thank you all!

I have left thoughts here before. Reading the remembrances from his combat brothers tears me up. Fifty effing years, but when we remember and say so, no one is gone. It could have been any one of us. So her I am, no in country service, E-5, draftee and I knew Bob at Geneseo. Damn, what a loss!

I remember him almost every day. He replaced me online. He died when an APG wound hit him the chest.

I was the person charged with writing a letter to his family. I had a terrible time. We had a picture of him showering from the rear but it was disallowed. My wife took our four children to D.C. and I had them do a rubbing of SGT Prete's engraving. He will live with me and my children forever I hope. A very nice guy

Remembering Robert

I served with Robert in the 101st in Vietnam. I remember the night, and the firefight, when we lost him. Our platoon was broken hearted. He was a friend and a brave leader. I have always kept him in my heart.

Never Forgotten

While trying to remember significant moments in my life I came upon this site that I never knew existed. Reading through the remembrances I found the one left by my great niece and it brought me to tears. Her grandfather was my brother-in-law. Bob once drove me back to NJ from Chili, NY were I was visiting with my cousin. Those were a treasured 6 hours we spent chatting mostly about my sister. His love for her was obvious to me. His sacrifice for family and country must never be forgotten or thrown away by a reckless, despicable president.
