Robert W. Beskar
Bob served with the 916th Air Refueling Squadron, USAF, out of Travis AFB, Ca. from 1968 to 1972 as a crew chief on a KC-135A, air refueling tanker.
He and his “Bird” spent several months, off and on, Temporary Duty in South East Asia in support of the Vietnam War effort and earned the rank of SSGT before his tour ended. Bob is very proud to have served his country.
Since 9-11, Bob has written many patriotic poems to honor his country and the men and women who have, and still do defend it! His poems reflect those feelings and he continues to keep these brave souls in his thoughts and writings.
His fervent desire: That freedom forever reigns because of their sacrifices!
