Farewell Bob Feland - 540th Combat Engineer

Received this note, this week:


Hope all is well with you.

Just wanted you to know with sad regret that Bob Feland passed away on the 15th.  He was 96.


Bob was one of the veteran's featured in my documentary. In fact, my husband did his voice-overs. Bob shared a wealth of info regarding my dad's unit, and I felt very lucky that I got to know him, even if it was only for a few years. Thank you for touching my life. Rest in peace Bob.

Sorry to hear, still, even though it has become so common to hear this sort of news. Part of life, I guess. I suppose it was all of the Civil War guys who were dying at the time of the WWI and all of the Spanish American War vets who were dying about the time of WWII or shortly there after. 


Farewell, sir! Thank you for your service!
