My name is Richard Rose. I served as chief communications Sgt. with ODA-402 and knew Robert well. I, too, wear his bracelet and have visited the Vietnam Memorial Wall in DC, where I over-sketched his name. Robert relieved me on a mission to Nui Coto, and was ambushed and went missing. May Robert rest in peace. I often think of what would have happened if I had insisted on going back to Nui Coto, while leaving Bob at the Team. God only knows, why. I will miss my brother, forever. I look forward to seeing him again one day. |
