To all oldtimers from Rhein-Main, Incirlik, Offutt, and Yokota operations, I just received a note from Lilian advising that Robert H. "Bob" Bergeron died at his home in Gulf Shores, Alabama on 3 April 2007 after a long illness.
Early Rhein-Mainers will recall that he was the Admiral on a crew that waved goodbye to the crew of 60528 on the morning of 2 September 1958 as they departed on their final mission.
For those who wish to send condolences or notes, Lil's address is
PO Box 348
Gulf Shores, AL 36547
Rest in Peace, Bob.
This narrative was sent from Tom Tennant via Darr King to the Silent Warriors webmaster. Darr added these words:
"I flew with Bob while assigned to the 88th at Yokota. Remember him as an outstanding NCO and AMS."
