Robert D. Hauer
|Location of Death||Khanh Hoa, South Vietnam|
Bobby was a great guy - truly unique. I remenber the all nighters we (Bob, Jack Crowley and I) pulled cramming for tests at his Brookine apartment.
I recall he had a much younger brother for whom he had good deal of affection.
Bob was originally listed as MIA on 05 Sept 70, but in reality he was KIA that day - a little over two years after graduation. Bob was piloting a forward observer aircraft when he was shot down and his plane was seen plummeting into triple canopy jungle, no parchute observed or beeper detected. Rich (Cheech) DiPietro - a veteran pilot himself - is 100% correct - Bobby was a great guy and we had a lot of enjoyable days at BC talking about our futures after military service. I still miss him and was very proud that he chose to become a flyer for his country.
