Robert L. (Bob) Ferree

Nickname: Sugar Bear (sierra bravo)

Whole time in Nam I was a RTO. Carried radio for 1st Platoon leader Lt. Hemphill, then RTO for company commander Capt. Trumbo, then about 3 months on Birmingham as battalion radio operator working 7 days a week 12 hours a day. Still much better than humping in the field. Finally last 2 months was battalion commander C&C helicopter radio man. I can’t remember his name but he was an African American Lt.Col.

Did receive C.I.B. and Air Medal. Honorable discharge as Spec. 4.
