I also served with Bob in Baumholder, Germany. He was a great guy who was always willing to help another Agent.

Haven't been on the website for sometime now. Very sorry to learn of Bob's death. We served
together at Baumholder, GY, and were CID partners
there during the very turbulent l967-l968 years in
American history. He always spoke lovingly of his spouse and was proud of all his 5 sons. Bob will be sorely missed.

My Father loved his work and family. He achieved a reputation as a dedicated person. His passing was unexpected and has left a void in the hearts of those who knew him. Because of his devotion to duty he encourged me to enter the Law Enforcement Community. As a Retired Marine and Graduate of the U.S. Army CID Academy I became a Criminal Investigator and Special Agent of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. His councel is missed.

M/SGT Robert M Strong Sr died at Pomona Valley Hospital, California, on 19 February 2007. He lived in Ontario, California for the past 30 years. Among the survivors are his wife of 65 years, Thecla Dreiling Strong, and their 5 sons. M/SGT Strong was inducted into military service at Cincinnati, Ohio, on 20 November 1943. He served in the Army Military Police Corps for 30 years. He graduated from CID School at Camp Gordon, GA in January 1952. His tours of duty included Austria, Korea, Turkey, England and Germany. On 28 November 1974, he retired from CID where he specialized in contract fraud, logistic investigations and physical security surveys. His investigative methods and procedures were formalized and became the standard investigative model for future fraud investigations. His awards included the Meritorious Service medal, Army Commendation Medal w/OLC, Good Conduct Medal (7 awards), American Campaign medal, WWII Victory Medal, Army of Occupation medal (Germany), National Defense Service Medal w/OLC, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal and a 6th U S Army Certificate of Achievement. He continued his work as an Investigator through his own business, Strong Investigation Services. He was a member of the parish of St Margaret's for over 20 years. Services were held at St Margaret's parish on 5 March 2007. Internment followed immediately at the Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, California. A note of interest is that M/SGT Strong had only one eye when he was inducted into the Army. He had lost his eye at age 5. A Prosthesis was completed in Percy Jones General hospital in late 1947!
