My father told me all about Tech Sgt. Roberts, he looked up to him and was very grateful to have had the opportunity to call him friend.

I have pictures that I believe are of Isiah, Dennis, Randy and a few others from the late 1960's of their adventures during their time in the USAF.

I know you recieved mutliple Good Conduct medals, National Service medal with one bronze star among many others. My father never forgot Isiah and I will tell my children about him as well.

God bless him and his family.
