"To Mrs. Robert G. Davis & Family, I didn't know your husband, but after stumbling on this web-site by accident or I might just say it wasn't an accident but God had guided me to this site. I read all of the posting on Sgt. Davis and wow, what a wonderful Soldier this man had to have been. Although, many years have come and gone, the memory of your husband must be something special. I just want to thank him, along with the other fallen Soldiers for giving their time & lives to serve this Country in a war that should not have been. I thank each of them for their bravery and to them, I give praise. Now, they are in a much better place - serving as Soldiers for the Lord. My most deepest sympathy.

Be Blessed!!!!!!!"
Barbara E. of Memphis, TN

"Mrs. Davis and family,
Its been six years and yet I wanted to let you know your husbands memory will never be forgotten. I talk to my Soldiers and always reference back on how I lost a best friend in Afghanistan. I wanted to let you know people will never forget his kindness and selfless service. I wish you and your family the deepest condolences once again."

"Dear Mrs. Davis and Family
I am SSG Ash, I am currently in Kandahar Afghanistan. I want you to know that it has been almost 5 years and still Bob's memory is still with me to this day. I will never let the unit forget there Fallen HERO's. I can say that he has left a lasting impact on me and will never forget my friend. Brothers Always."
SSG Ash, Roger of Kandahar, Afghanistan

"This is hard for me. That day I happen to be a part of that experience and it haunts me. Bob and I werent exactly close, but as the deployment drew on, we started to actually talk a lot more than we had before. I think we had been in the battalion together for at least two or three years together ( I had been there since 2001), and the more we happen to cross each other's paths the more we talked. We talked about his baby on the way, talked about home (he from Jackson and myself from St Louis) so we had a common ground. It turned out him and I actually got a long quite a bit. Its a shame a friendship that was developing was taken from us. I remember talking and joking with him that morning, and never thought I would see what transpired next. He was and is a good man. He loved his job, his family and his friends. Every now and again I still talk to Theresa his sister, and Judy his mother to see how things are going. I was recently injured in an accident being a paratrooper at Ft Bragg and am now back home in St Louis, Mo. pursuing school. I really hope to visit Judy and co. soon. These things are really tough on everybody, as I lost another best friend in 2007 SGT Bryce D Howard, and the pain the families and friends have to endure is something I pray that nobody has to feel. These men are heroes to me. Its unfortunate, but these men that served with me couldn't be finer men, brothers in arms, husbands, fathers etc. They will live on in my heart forever. I cannot sit here and tell everyone that I know the pain and anguish from losing a family member, however these men actually felt like they were family to me because I never really had family. I honor them and their memories, and wish nothing but love and prosperity for the families."
SSG Todd M. Washburn (ret) of St. Louis, Mo.

"It's been years and to this day I still keep the memory of
Bob alive. He'll never be forgotten. He's was always a strong and awesome individual. I know Brayden "Lil Bob" is growing and is being taken care of by his beautiful mom; Mandy and being looked down upon by both his grandmom and his dad. Bob, I miss you dearly. We all do. We all think of you. I remember all the times at work you would take time to help out even when you had other things to do. You were a model Soldier, a great friend and you always went above and beyond the call of duty. You cared beyond words. You went far beyond what words can describe. You were much more than just a Soldier you were a husband and a father and a true friend to many. I miss you so much.

I don't know if anyone on this site knows about legacy.com but there is a guestbook site there as well in Bob's honor : http://www.legacy.com/gb2/default.aspx?bookid=14926321

We Miss You!! Keep watching over your loved ones!!"

"Bob,Amanda,and Brayden,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband and My best freind. I will alway's remember the time's me and Bob spent huntin and fishin'. The battalion just ain't the same without him. I will alway's be here for ya' if you ever need anything.Here is a little something that was put together for my lost friend's.
I am that which other's did not want to be. I go where other's fear to go, and I do what other's fail to do. I ask nothing from those sho gave nothing and reluctantly accept the thought of eternal loneliness....should I fail. I have seen the face of terror, felt the stinging cold of fear,and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love. I have cried,pained, and hoped....but most of all, I have lived times, other's would say were best forgotten. At least some day I will be able to say that I am proud of what I am.... A SOLDIER!
Thank's Bob and you will never be forgotten!"
SPC. Gary M. Dearman of Fort Lewis,Wa

"I'm sitting at my computer tonight in Pleasant Grove, Utah. It's late, and I just saw a picture of your son that was posted there by a friend of his. I cannot comprehend your loss. I hope to never have to endure the loss of a child. I am a young father with four children, ages 6,5,4, and 2. It is only after becoming a father that I realize the difficulty it must be to send a son to war. I am greatful beyond expression to Robert for his courage and his commitment. I pray you will find the strength you need to bear his loss. I pray you will feel the thoughts and prayers of all of us who try to appreciate your son's sacrifice so that our own children can enjoy a safe future. May the Lord bless you. Again, I realize I cannot comprehend your loss. I can only try to appreciate the freedoms I enjoy every day because of the bravery of people like your son. Thankyou"
