Comments: My name is Dale Hallett and I worked with Bob Omick at the same historic sight for several seasons. I was doing a little research on Bob's Unit and thought I'd pass on his obituary.

Bob was like a second grandfather to me. He was quite the character and his mind was razor sharp even in his seventies. He told some stories of Korea and one day I brought in my slide projector to look at about 50 slides he had taken during the war. I wish I had scanned them.

If you have any picture files of Bob I'd love to see them.

Thanks, Dale Hallett

Las Cruces Sun News 25 Nov 2006

Robert Edwin Omick, 76, passed away on Tuesday, November 21, 2006 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Bob was born on May 31, 1930 in Chicago, IL. He served as an artillery sergeant in the Korean War. After graduating from Central College in Pella, IA, he went on to earn a PhD in English Literature from the University of Iowa in 1966. During his career, he taught at the University of Iowa, Indiana State University and served as Dean of the College of Arts and Letters at Western New Mexico University. He also loved drama, was an outstanding actor, and directed and starred in many plays. In retirement he traveled often, volunteering in national and state parks in Missouri and New Mexico. He was a man of uncommon wit, humor and insight and is deeply missed by his family and friends.

I cannot find any information on the unit prior to about 1920. If anyone could point me in the direction of a historian, or other source I would be so greatful. I got the info that he was in the 9th from his tombstone. I have requested his service records, and expect to receive them in about 6 months time. Thing is we are having a family reunion in 6 weeks, and what I would like to try and find out is where his unit was deployed during the "war to end all war's" as we now know this wasn't. I would be so appreciative if anyone can help me out.
