Robert Heisterman was a true gentleman in every since of the word. When I first met him, he was the commander of 24th Ordinance Company at Ft Stewart, GA. I was reassigned there in February 1972 after a tour of duty in Korea. At that time, I did not know he had served in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. He had been shot down and received honors for his heroic actions.

Shortly after coming to Ft Stewart, I was promoted to E-5 after beginning my assignment. To me, he was Cpt Heisterman, Commander. I was so impressed by the way this gentleman carried himself. He was always mild mannered and carried himself with great dignity and professionalism. I was discharged in June of 1973 after completing 3 years of active duty. I had no intentions of serving further in the military. However, I later reconsidered. I went off to OCS and became an officer. I began a career in the Georgia Army National Guard. Cpt Heisterman became my role model as an officer. After over 30 years of service I retired in 2004. Several months ago I reconnected with "Bob" on the telephone. We reminisced of military days long gone. It was at that point that I learned of his service in Vietnam and how he had been shot down. He explained to me how I had made his day. I quickly responded by telling him the honor was mine. I am thankful I had the opportunity to express to him the sense of indebtedness I had for the great impact he had on my life. We were both delighted to have reconnected after all those years. Without a doubt, "Bob", you will be missed by many. Thank you for your service. Rest in peace "brave warrior".

I had no idea he had passed away, just happened on this obituary. I knew him when he was a student pilot at Ft Rucker, Alabama. I visited him when he was a patient in the hospital at Ft Gordon, Ga. after a horrible helicopter crash in Vietnam. I knew and dated his room mate at Ft Rucker, Thomas Christopher who is also now deceased. May God rest his soul and comfort his family.
