The Story

Sgt. 1st Class Forrest W. Robertson, 35 years old, of Westmoreland, KS died November 3, 2013 in Pul-E-Alam, Afghanistan when enemy forces attacked his unit.  He was assigned to the 6th Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat team. 

A soldier at heart, he joined the army in 1996 at the young age of seventeen, after his mom signed the release.  He started his military career off the line, delivering ammunition.  When he renewed his contract with the army (reupped) he changed his MOS and became a scout, moving from behind the lines to the front.  He loved his job and was doing exactly what he wanted...but something was missing.  He reconnected with his high school sweetheart and was knew she was the one.  Married 12 years and 3 girls later, he loved and adored his family with everything thing he had. 

He leaves a legacy of love and dedication behind.  Having touched many lives along the way, a Facebook page in his honor was started and continues to grow with stories and pictures pouring forth every day.  The overall theme of the stories is he was funny, he cared, he was dedicated leader and friend, strong, faithful, a family man, inspiring, loving, grateful, respectful, and a brave hero.  He was an American soldier and loved by everyone who was lucky enough to know him.

We want a permanent reminder of his legacy as a soldier, phenomenal father, and loving husband.  The Wamego Area Veterans Memorial has been established to honor past, present, and future military veterans with granite bricks, granite benches, and flagpoles, which can be purchased to honor a fellow veteran.  Our goal is to raise $1900.0 for the installation of a granite bench and flagpole with a plaque attached stating:  "in memory of SFC Forrest W. Robertson."  Funds raised in excess of this will go to the family he sacrificed everything for.  Please feel free to leave a message of love and support for his wife, children, mother, and family.  Any support to build this memorial is greatly appreciated.

"Step forward now, you soldier, you've borne your burden well.  Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, you've done your time in Hell." - Honoring our fallen Facebook page.
