Memorial Picture "...DYER, Robert D...Please fly your flags at half-mast on Wednesday, July 1st in honor of my Father, Cdr. Robert D. Dyer, USN (Ret'd.) who passed away today (June 27th). Dad made the Navy his life and retired after 32 years of service. During his career he was with VP-5, VP-7, VP-30 and VP-49. I was, and still am, extremely proud of my Dad's service to our country and to all of you who have sacrificed so much in defense of this nation we call AMERICA. In true Navy fashion, his ashes will be cast upon the waters of the Atlantic if we can find a P-3 going on patrol that is willing. God bless you all!...Bobby Dyer decals@worldnet.att.net [28JUN98]
