More detail on this person: Robert R. Blake, 68, passed away August 4, 2016. Distinguished Flying Cross recipient, loving husband and father, he is survived by his wife, Candace, and children. I know he was born February 18, 1948. Robert served in Vietnam 1969 in the Delta. He was a Cobra Pilot, one of the first, as he transitioned in-country. He retired from the Missouri Army National Guard.

He was a patriot, my best friend, had a unique wit, and was a generous, honorable man who loved his family and he was the best Cobra Pilot I had the honor to fly with.
