ROBERT MORRIS HODGES (19?? - 1942)
"Bobby"


May 7, 2007

Hi,

My brother's name was Robert "Bobby" Morris Hodges. He joined the U.S.Navy at the onset of WWII and was on the USS Genesee, which I am told he helped scuttle to keep the Japs from using. He was later seen by a priest who knew our family in the Death March in Bataan. We have no news of him since. He was considered MIA, was awarded a Purple Heart (sent to our family after we came to Texas - our father's home). My mother returned to the Philippines years later and found his name at the memorial for U.S. servicemen/women in Manila. Not knowing was very hard for her.

Thanks....Dr. Mary Vance
