SFC Robert Hernandez Sr, 84, US Army, Korea/Vietnam Veteran, OF Harker Heights, TX

Robert had a distinguished, decorated service history that he could proudly recall and share in fascinating detail right up to his passing. He received the Combat Infantryman Badge at a young age, and several Army Commendation medals along with too many other medals to mention for his outstanding service to our Country.
