I just recently learned of the death of your son, Robert, in Afghanistan. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

I went to ODU for two years (80-82) and remember how passionate and serious you were about flying. You must be so proud of the fine young man he became.

Bob:
I know you won't remember my name, but I was in the ODU ROTC unit with you in '79-81. I only recently read the ODU Monarch magazine and discovered the memorium to your son. I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for such a devastating loss. You must be so proud to have raised such a wonderful son willing to serve his country to the full measure--just as you were. No words can ease your pain, but I offer heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

I didn't know RJ well, but I was a member of the Cavalier Battallion at the same time he was and a co-captain of Lake Braddock High's swim team at the same time he was captain of our rivals at Robinson.
I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your loss, I am proud to have known RJ even a little. He was a great man and a great American. We will never forget his courage.

I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Robert will never be forgotten.

For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I'm home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I'm only a civilian
And I don't even know if it's allowed

But I salute you; allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you.

For those missing in action;
for those who didn't make it home.
I know you're in God's presence you are not alone.
For every neatly folded flag;
for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.

I salute you, allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you .

I Salute You.
