Robert William Smith is on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Panel 12E Line 064.

Robert, You were so new we hardly knew you. You had just come from the States; you were just getting used to your new environment when we were hit hard. Vic and I picked you up and thought we were getting you to the medic in time, but found out you were probably gone when we picked you up. I wanted to tell your family what happened, but for a long time, I just couldn't. I still haven't. If they come here some time, they could ask me about it if they want. We were both so new then and now I'm old. Sorry, bud. See you in heaven.
