The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Robert Lee (BOB) Nemitz our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for BOB. And to BOB it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Korean and Vietnam Wars while serving in the U.S. Air Force. BOB, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to BOB's family and loved ones.

Aunt Bobbie: We are so sorry for your loss and praying God will lead you through this time. Thanking God Uncle Bob is not hurting anymore. I sure do remember the time he took me fishing and he used a square piece of soap as bait. It was just he and I and I will always cherish that memory. We had such a good time. Prayers for you and Randy. We love you and miss you. Harlan, Tana, and Kids
