Bob "Marty" was a good friend. We served together in Hawaii and shared many adventures together. I will miss talking with him about our adventures, esp the night we got our rental car stuck between to trees on Guam (1977). We just walked away and left it. Bob had rented the car and never heard from the the rental company. Just one of a thousand!!
