I'm so sad and sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. He was great to work with and great to know.
He was a true patriot and made everlasting contributions and improvements to the Boom Operator career field and the USAF Flight Manual Program. He will be dearly missed.
Please accept my condolences and prayers.
