"Today is ANZAC Day in Australia. A day where we remember those who have given their life and those who are still serving their country. Every year I think of Robert as I was serving with him in TK when he gave his life for his country. His memorial service in the desert is a memory I will never forget. He was the first soldier we lost during my rotation who was working beside us. He is remembered as always talking about his family and how he could not wait to get home to them. Now he rests with them for eternity. My thoughts and love extend to the Chiomento family."

"All I can think of to say to all of you is a very heartfelt Thank You, for posting your condolenses, and very kind and supportive comments, to us, in memory of our son, Bobby. He was not just our son, but, also, one of the best friends two parents could ever have had. We were so close to him, and to his wonderful wife/widow Staci, and to their two beautiful daughters. To Bobby, helping to keep his men safe was what he seemed to work hardest at accomplishing, and it was no different on that terrible day. We have always known he was a hero, and on July 17, 2006, he ended up proving that we weren't wrong. We will miss him for the rest of our lives, until we see him again in heaven.
God's blessings,
Christie Chiomento
