 Statement from Secretary Robert Wilkie:

I am sad to report the passing of an American soldier.  Lt. Col. Bobby Harris, USA (ret.) will be laid to rest in the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. His life is a testament to  the thousands of young Americans who without question fought and sacrificed all in Southeast Asia.  His legacy is one all Americans can be proud of—faith, family and devotion to the ideal of America.
