"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother"
35th Infantry Regiment
"Not For Fame or Reward
Not For Place or For Rank
But In Simple Obedience To
Duty as They Understood It"
The 35th Infantry Regiment Association salutes our fallen brother, SSG Bobby Senters, who died in the service of his country on June 20th, 1966 in Pleiku Province, Vietnam. The cause of death was listed as Booby Trap. At the time of his death Bobby was 27 years of age. He was from Ashland, Kentucky. Bobby is honored on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Panel 08E, Line 69.
I served with Bobby in Ft Polk La and we were transferred to the 25th Infantry Division in December 1964. Bobby, his wife Virginia and his three children met us in Texas and we traveled to California together. We arrived in Hawaii in late December 1964. Bobby was assigned to 2d Bn 35th Inf while I went to 1st Bn 35th Inf.Bobby and I had been instructors on the 81mm Mortar Committee in Fort Polk, both promoted to E6 at Ft Polk. I do not have information about Bobby after the 3d Bde deployed to Vietnam.
