My beloved brother Lance Corporal Robert A. Wiedeman

He entered the marines when he was only 17. He was a kind and gentle person and we all loved him dearly. We will always miss his presence and the love he had for his family and his little niece Shelley. He always wrote and told me to take care of his "little blondie".


He is survived by two brothers, one who was a medic in the Army and only forty miles away from where he was in Vietnam and at the time of his death. Also he is survived by three sisters.


He was very proud of what he was doing for his country and gave his life for what he believed in and died a hero. And will always be a hero in our hearts.


He is very sadly missed by his mother Sheila R. Wiedeman. She has never really gotten over his death. And I know there are 57,999 other mothers and fathers who feel the same way.
