**NOTE #2**: I googled Kai Rober (in quote marks) and found reference on second page.  It was about a red chinese
note w/signitures from the China / Burma campaign.  Site showed both sides of the note. I have quite a few of the
photos from Kai's/my mother's family, and know I  have seen photos of him in uniform, but remember mostly they
were portraits.  I am the keeper of the family photos which my aunt, Kai's sister had acquired, and I have to go
through them again and better. Her younger sister is in town here and is very sharp.  She was a young teen during
WWII, but knows the family history. My uncle, Kai, worked on water/reservoir/construction projects with the CCC
during the depression, and his experience there was useful in the Burma Highway  (G. Stilwell's project).  I will
check on info and get back to you.  Kai had a great capacity to size up a situation, and to size up people, and get
them working smoothly together.  He was quiet, humble, but strong and heroic. Danish parents. He also served in
Korea , and often told the tale of the Christmas Eve evacuation of American troops from (Inchon?).  While
thousands were evacuating towards waiting ships, he and some few others were heading in the opposite direction,
toward a bridge that needed to be blown up....  Bill
