  2. Bob, in my view, was the most dedicated of the PPCLI vets. He was kind and very concerned about the association and the welfare of members. Bob created and kept a memorial of material of the PPCLI in Korea and never missed a meeting or other obligation. He set the standard of performance for others to follow. Bob kept the most complete record of those who served in Korea. I have the greatest respect for Bob and his achievements. Mrs. Adams you have every reason to exceptionally proud of Bob. He is sorely missed by all.
