Serving at the Fort Dix Barracks, I became friends with "Nails", as did many other Troopers. Nails was the consumate Operator, always going above and beyond what was asked or required. Nails consistently honed his skills in his quest to become a member of the NJSP. Nails worked very hard and succeeded in his dream. Bob was one of the best guys I've ever worked with and I will miss him. God bless you my friend!

I worked with 'Nails' at Ft Dix Station. We were both Communications Operators at the time. He was one of the best operators and a hell of a good guy. RIP Nails.
