From a contemporary press report
Walter P. Bobbio died on August 7, 2001 at Fair Oaks Hospital after an extensive illness.
He served his country as a combat infantryman, a veteran of World War II, with campaigns throughout Europe.
Once he completed his tour of duty in the military, he had a distinguished career with the CIA. He was stationed overseas for many years, primarily in the Far East.
His wife, Susan, and his son, Karl, survive him.
Funeral services will be held at the Cemetery Chapel at 1 p.m. on August 23, 2001. Burial at the Arlington Cemetery will follow.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
