Bobby McKnight - 3rd platoon - Delta Company - 1969

Postby Delta75 » Mon Jul 18, 2016 8:33 pm

Hello Delta Company,

Sadly my Delta Brothers I must report that we have lost another Brother.

Bobby McKnight, 3rd platoon, Delta Company, 1969.

Bobby carried the 60 for me in 3rd platoon, and he and his wife Betty were our best friends. Betty was carrying Bobby to his VA appointment in Houston, TX this afternoon, and they were both killed in a head-on crash in a driving rain storm.

Please remember both of them as well as all of their family members and friends in your prayers.

I will communicate the funeral arrangements as soon as I am notified.

Take Care My Brothers

Hello All (blind-copied),

FYI: I checked with Robert, Bobby's son, and he has verified that this "go fund me" posting is legit, and that it was set up by a cousin of Betty's (Bobby's wife). It is a fund to help with the funeral cost for Bobby and Betty.

Best regards
Jerry
