Mr. Carroll, a U.S. Army Vietnam Era Veteran, served as a 62E Combat Engineer Bulldozer operator at Ft. Dix, New Jersey, Ft. Leonardwood, MO. and Darmstadt, FRG. from 1965 to 1971. Bob was a long-time PGR member serving mostly in the lower section of region 2 as our event photographer but he will mostly be remembered as a great friend to us all.
