    As beautiful today as in ’68. Many who werent in a position to watch TV in Vietnam, got to see her in person. She would visit firebases. She gave up a lot to be there. I know that the First Cav. will always love her.

    I remember Bobbie when I was at Tan Son Nhut ’66-’67….In pic # 5: Bobbie’s answer to “Hanoi Jane’s” posing w/NVA anti aircraft guns! And, Bobbie’s a damn sight prettier. They should have shot the the other “Bit–“

    Bobbie came to our unit – Battery E, 82nd Artillery (Aviation), 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) in the spring of 69. She was wearing a pink dress that was cut well above her knees. She had everyone’s heart beating. She had and I’m sure still does have a great spirit. Bobbie radiated that day with us. I’ve got some photos of her during this visit if any one is interested.

      Patrick,
      I am writing a memoir to honor veterans of the Vietnam War. I need pictures of Bobbie the Weather Girl. There are good ones on the internet but I cannot find out how to contact owners of the pictures to get permission to use them.

      Please contact me if you own any pictures of her that you would consider sharing for this purpose or if you know how I could contact Bobbie or anyone else who may own pictures.

    Hey Bobbie. Never had the great opportunity to meet you personally in Vietnam but that would have been a wonderful day. I am in contact with several of the guys from Echo Btry, 82nd Arty that still have your beautiful visit, burned in their minds. First of all, thanks for what have have done and continue to do. The conversation I had with you a few weeks back was very good and looking forward to future communications. I know you must love the 1st Air Cav and we love you. The very best to you and your future endeavors. Old Cav Soldier Bill (Echo Btry, 82nd Arty Woodpecker)

    Hi Bobbie,
    It was great seeing you again and spending time with you and Navy Nurse Margaret at the Reunion yesterday in Melbourne. Like a fine wine you get even better with age. Stay beautiful.

    That is a great photo but the caption is wrong. That is NOT a Cobra helicopter in the photo.
