    Thanks for doing this project and posting the excerpt. This is my father. He passed away on December 20, 2014. A marine to the end.

      Hello Sandra,

      I visited a WW II man about four houses from your dad and thought about visiting Bob. I used to stop by three or four times a year. I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I tried to get your dad to do another interview about a year ago and he thought he was not up to it. I am glad he sat down with me a few years ago for a DVD interview. At that time he was the only Marine aviator that I had interviewed. I only live a couple of miles from Bob in Jackson. My wife and I are in Florida now for the winter. Again I am sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. As you said he was a Marine to the end. Your family should be proud of his WW II history.

      Larry Martin
