REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR ROBERT CARROL WRIGHT
POSTED ON 2.2.2004

If I should die...remembrances for 2LT. Robert Carrol WRIGHT, USA...Elk City's bravest hero, ever!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

You're the memory so many cherish

Bob,
We became friends when I was just 14, and you were preparing for college. My memories are of you as my first date, but more importantly, as a very special friend.
I've read the tributes to you from so many on the internet, and they all recognize how special you were. People like you don't come along often. Whenever I visit Elk City, I make it a point to visit your gravesite to place flowers there. The memory of you will always be cherished by many.

Salute the Fallen Hero
Bob and I were part of a handful of young brash OCS candidates tossed together by chance who somehow bonded into a team that helped one another make it to the end. Bob was almost a home town boy training at Ft. Sill while most of us were miles from home. He ran faster, jumped higher and laughed louder and made sure I never stopped believing we would all make it through. I took my two daughters to vist the Wall and couldn't explain to them why I cried when we touched his name. Bob would have loved my girls. He went to Nam and they sent me to Korea along with four others in our group. When the Stars and Stripes reported him KIA the world stood still for me and the others. I live nearby to the Wall these days and I like to walk down along the path sometimes at night usually in daylight and touch his name and whisper is was not in vain.
