Staff Sgt. Floyd Henry Robinson - E6/ US ARMY- Born Friday January 28, 1949
Company E, 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division, MOS-11B40
On March 12, 1969 , Sgt. Robinson was serving as pointman for a 5-man reconnaissance team of a rifle company.
The team was operating in Kontum Province, South Vietnam, about 10 miles West-Northwest of the city of DAK TO.
During the mission the team became engaged in a heavy gun fire fight in the late afternoon. At that time, Robinson and two other team members were seperated from the team leader and his assistant.
The 3 men began to escape and evade in a heavily congested area. They continued to evade until 1700 hours.
On March 14, they had crossed a stream and had moved south where they were ambushed by a squad-sized element of communist soldiers.
The 3 men returned fire and were able to break contact. Robinson proceeded north on a trail, while the other men sought to find cover in the thick brush.
That was the last time Robinson was seen alive.
The 2 other men continued to evade and were eventually returned to friendly forces.
Company size operations were conducted in the area in which Robinson was last seen for 2 weeks after the loss without a sign of Robinson.
He was classified Missing In Action!
Nearly 10,000 reports relating to Americans in South East Asia have been received by the U.S. Government since 1975.
A Pentagon panel concluded in 1986 that there were at least 100 men still alive.
Robinson could be one of them men.
How much longer must they wait for this country to bring them home?
These men belong walking on or buried in American soil.
Adopt a soldier and help bring them back where they belong.
On July 8 , 1975 Robinson was declared Dead/Missing
