"Robert was like a little brother to me. We joined the reserves together and were assigned to the 805th together.
I was prior service active duty so Robert looked up to me for guidence. I gladly gave him all I could.
I deployed in 2004 and upon my return to the unit I found a fine young soldier in Robert. He had been through his basic training and A.I.T. He was "good to go" and "squared away".
We got word of a platoon sized element from the 805th was to be deployed to Iraq with the 414th MP Co. out of Mo., one of our sister units. Robert was on the list. We talked in depth the last drill before he left. He assured me he was "Good to go, Sarge!" and gave that smile that only Robert could give.
That was the last time I ever saw my buddy, Robert. I had told him not to come back with a Purple Heart or I'd "kick his butt!" He simply smiled and promised me he wouldn't. Don't I feel like a fool now. He was awarded one postumasly. Along with the Bronze Star for Valor.
I will always love and keep Robert and his family in my thoughts and prayers. He has payed the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our constitution against all enimies foriegn and demestic!"
Sgt. Hank J. Bernd of 805th MP Co. (CS) Garner, NC
