Lets add "Schamy" to the list of great Americans! He's no longer with us as we lost him with two of his other Seal Team members, when invading Grenada; they were the first of newly formed Seal Team 6 to perish in action. For those who'd like to know more about this tragedy read the books by Richard Marshenko, who selected Bob for team 6...and was his commanding officer. Also, to those who'd like to have more info. re: this horrifying event, I'll discuss with at the 50th reunion.. He'll have my love & respect 'till I take my last breath. Robert Schamberger certainly belongs on the "Honored Ramapo High School Military Alumni list!! Thank you... Dennis S. Morgan
