The database page for Robert Wilber Toler, Jr
My name is Terry L. Garrett I was a fellow soldier of Sergeant Toler. I just wanted to pay a tribute to him, if anyone ever looked for him on The Virtual Wall. He was my platoon leader during part of the spring of 1971. We both were on a Hunter/Killer Team that sometimes went inside the DMZ on recon patrols.
It's been nearly 36 years since he died. I don't recall the day of his death - we were separated on different missions at the time. He was a good soldier who taught me a lot about how to survive in the jungle in a torturous environment; I think he was either on his 2nd or 3rd tour in that hell hole. I have his name penciled on paper on my desk with many others who served with the Red Devil Brigade. I often think of him and his service to this great country. Rest in Peace, old friend.
