Robert P. Kassin

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Clovis, NM

Branch of Service: U.S. Army

Rank: Sergeant

Sergeant. Kassin enlisted in the Army in 1996. He was on his third enlistment and second tour of duty in Afghanistan. He was serving with the 2nd Warrior Battalion, 4th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team of the 10th Mountain Division when he was killed in action after enemy forces attacked his platoon with small arms fire during combat operations in Afghanistan.

He was funny, caring, and always brought people home who needed help when their situation at home was not the best.

He always tried to help the underdog and include people into his family who may not have had a good family or had no family at all. He was a good shoulder when you needed one and would always try to cheer you up when you needed it.
