I just spoke with Bob Wisdom. He is in a Rehad Facility in San Antonio. He had fallen and injured his back and head. I spoke with him on Monday and he indicted he could probably go home Tuesday. Unfortunately he had a seizure and is still at the rehab facility. This is turning into a bad week for our shipmates. I will keep you posted on Bob’s status.
Robin, can you pass on Bobby’s number to me? This is a weird coincidence but Thursday we left Amarillo, headed towards Oklahoma. Not long after being on the road we passed through Claude, Texas, and I immediately remembered that’s where Bobby was from. We used to tease him about it :) Our prayers go out to him for a full recovery.

Hey Randy, we moved to Waco...if you get near here on your travels!!
Hey Jane! Wish I had known, we’re eastbound now in Arkansas. Moved back to Texas, huh? When did you do that ? Still ❤️ Ya!
Randy, Bob now lives in a retirement facility in San Antonio. He is currently in a rehab facility and will probably be there until approx 4 Aug. I will check with Bob about sending you his contact info.
I hate hearing that Bob is having health issues. I know we're aging but it doesn't make it easier to hear that friends are suffering. Please give Bob my best wishes for a complete recovery and let me know if I can do anything.
More bad news... here's hoping and praying for Bob's recovery. r
Keeping Bob in my thoughts and prayers! Maybe I could go see him??
Why did y'all call him Little Bobby Wisdom? I can remember hearing him called that but don't know if it was 1st tour Kef or where? It has always stuck in my head. Just like Chief Millard will always be Disco Duck. If any of you see or talk to him, tell him hello. Most likely won't know who I am, but thats the way it goes.
My eldest son is at JBSA Lackland. He joined the GA Air National Guard at age 40 & had to go to Basic Training there. He put it off for a year, but went in in April. From what he told me, be very glad y'all joined the Navy. Micky Mouse would wonder at the things that happen there. Graduation was hilarious as the 'wings' tried to march. Oh yeah, graduation was on a Thursday. He is still there going to Security School, a route to where he wants to be down the line. Again, be glad you went to 'A' school when you did & in the Navy. This graduation will be on a Tuesday & he is not free to go for meal with family, if they show up. He flys out on Wednesday. His Sgt. told him that no one was free until the next morning. I can only shake my head at it all. Remember the Personal Cards that boots were given in the 90's. I believe they have disappeared.
Thats all from Raleigh, NC.
Hey Gail, my Granddaughter, her Husband and our Great Granddaughter are at Lackland. We’re supposed to go down for Thanksgiving.
