I made it just in the nick of time, after hearing of Bob's passing that same day at 1:30.

It was a good service, befitting this tough Marine. Only one person crying, and a pretty upbeat spirit filled the chapel.

Bob had a sizable familial group there, plus MANY vets with whom he had breakfast. That I could tell, one Lost Bn. survivor was there, plus many NG members.

There were three Marines for the flag detail / bugle call.

I like to think that Bob was plenty pleased with the service.

My mom, Margaret Garrison Barger, is looking for the 2nd book that H Robert Charles wrote called, "Surviving Vennie" Her father, my grandfather, was J.B Garrison, who Mr Charles mentioned in his first book, "Last Man Out" and we heard J.B. Is mentioned in the 2nd book. We would love to have that testimony about him.

Do you know of any relatives that we could contact in our search?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

We are looking for H.Robert Charles's 2nd book,"Surviving Vennie".We heard that he mentions my grandfather in it. His first book speaks highly of my grandfather, JB Garrison and we would love to see what he says in the 2nd book.

If you know of any family that we may contact in our search we would love to have that connection.Thanks for any help you can offer.
