I was at CAB in '77 and '78. Knew Bob, I was a dog handler, he was a bomb dog (Casey) handler. Got to drive a jeep, we were always on foot patrol and/or at "Bomb Dump". Bob often delivered box lunches, 90 cents, as opposed to C-rats. Very relaxed and laid back, knew the job and how to it. I was 18. He was an "Old man" at 22. Damn shame he never got to be a real one.
