Message from Alice Manning Bowers,
Thank you for the kind words and thoughts. I work with Brett Barham and he informed me that you were the one that sent the
message out to Charlie Co. notifying them of Bob's death. Bob never spoke of Viet Nam and I had no idea the things that he had done
while in Viet Nam. Thank you to you and all the guys for sharing your stories. I've always been proud of my brother and now after
hearing some of stories it makes me appreciate him for his
strength and strong will to live even more. I truly appreciate your kindness Kevan.
Brett Barham was one of the 1st Echo Company troopers when it was formed in mid 1968.
