.....my friend Bobby Roberts was killed at 20 years old on August 24, 1969 in Quang Nam province. He was a Marine. I posted the link below for anyone that cares to look at it.
On Sunday afternoons we played caveman and dug caves into the side of a creek embankment. We were 11 years old. When we got tired, we went swimming in the creek. That was back in the late fifties when creeks had water in them. Bobby always had a smile on his face. It was like it was painted on. Reportedly, he was shot in the head while doing his duty.
