I first met Bob when I arrived at the 15th CID at SHAPE, from VN in April 1973. Maria was an elegant lady, and Robert and Joseph were delightful young boys. Bob, along with AF Security MSG George Hulstine and I had handlebar mustaches. Bob was part of our MP Dart Team. I enjoyed working and socializing with Bob. May he be at peace an peace be with his family.

Bob served as an instructor in the CID Course at Ft Gordon circa 1967. He was a member of the Security Detachment for General Abrams at MACV in or around 1969.
