Sgt. Maj. Robert Bowman, an Army Ranger assigned to a Recon platoon, deployed to Mosul, Iraq, in 2004 for 12 months as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), operating under the call sign “HUNTER-7.” Bowman returned to Iraq for another 15 months in 2007 to support the surge — this time in and around Baghdad. Bowman was liked and well respected by his fellow soldiers.
“Every time I heard Bowman’s voice come over the radio,” one of them said, “I felt safe. He had a calming nature to him that always assured me in times of heated battles, that it would be okay.” His wife, Colleen, said Rob was a true “guy’s guy,” who taught each of their four daughters how to shoot and bait their own fishing hooks.
Upon returning from his second deployment, Bowman began to experience unexplained flu-like symptoms. He failed a physical for his next assignment and, soon after, was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma — an extremely rare form of bile duct cancer. Bowman succumbed to his illness and passed away on Jan. 13, 2013. He was just 44 years old.
