Comments:I volunteered to transport Robert after he was recovered, from the company pad to the disembarkation airport (can't remember which one)...It was a religious moment to feel his quiet precence in the helicopter..Was about the only time I allowed myself to reflect on what we were involved in...thought a prayer for him and family..I'll never forget that flight.
