Robert “Bob” proudly served in the U.S. Navy on the U.S. Harry Lee from 1941 to 1945.
During World War II, he served in seven invasions in the Pacific. After the war, Bob served in the U.S. Air Force from 1950 to 1964 and after retirement from the military he worked for the U.S. Postal Service in Fairfield, Calif.
