|Bob Gage was loved enough to be adopted by an exceptional couple. While in junior high school, his Dad passed away...his Mom has since passed.
Bob has no siblings, no family to remember him.
Imagine captivity under those circumstances!
I cannot help but reflect on how ALL POW/MIA
must be feeling just as alone...abandoned...
for more than THIRTY YEARS.
Do they still remember loved ones here?
Do they think we have forgotten them?
Do they know of The Wall..
or the memorials left there?
Did they even survive the torture of captivity?
Someone, some where KNOWS
what happened to them!
His synopsis follows:
Robert Hugh Gage volunteered to serve in
Viet Nam, and after completing his tour of duty,
he was transferred to Da Nang prior to
rotating to the United States.
LCPL Gage was in Da Nang only a couple of days when he disappeared. While preparing his belongings for the trip home, he was last seen in conversation with two Vietnamese women, attempting to locate a local resident to do laundry. Hours later, when it was discovered that he was,
in fact, missing, a massive search effort
by two platoons and eight dogs combed the area,
but no trace of LCPL Gage was ever found.
Bob Gage is on the government's
LAST KNOWN ALIVE list of our POW/MIA.
