Vietnam Photos by Bob Simmins

Bob Simmins recently reached out to share some photos of his Vietnam experience. These will be added to the gallery. They include: General Cooper presenting Bob Simmins with a Bronze Star at Fire Base Blue; Bob receiving the Purple Heart in Ft. Hood Texas; Mark Buckholt and Bob Simmons; and additional photos show the guys in the outfit in Phou Loi.


Bob shared that he was Mark’s drill instructor in Ft. Leonard Wood, then they bumped into each other in Vietnam, and now have been best friends for 47 years!
