Veteran of peleliu passed Bobby a fine American

My one brother called me let me know Bob passed away this morning 96 years old. So I post he Robert passed away alone only close family he had was a sister who passed eleven years ago. He has grandchildren yet he outlived his children, so Iíll attend his viewing and funeral all respect.

I grew up around bob he was a steel mill worker all Union. Me Iím teamster 34 years, he never talked about the war World War Two, years later I read how those men went ashore in peleliu had no water to drink after the first day. And the navy just filled up 55 gallon drums , never cleaned the barrels out and the combat vets drank that water. I would drank that water out 55 gallons drums as well ,being thirsty will work you as former infantry soldier I know and I did not have put up with Japanese.
