Hello Brian and Mary Wheat,
I came across a photo of your son, Robert Bittiker, in a somewhat remote cabin in the Alaskan wilderness while hiking up a glacier. Â It was a beautiful little spot where the scenery and the photo/story of your son moved me greatly. I gathered the photo and took it home with me after my vacation in the Yukon/Alaska. I have placed the photo on the Ottawa Canal, where I spend most of my time walking with my partner in the summertime and skating in the wintertime. It is my favourite place to be in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Thank you for the sacrifice your son, you, and your family and friends have made for America, Canada, and their allies. Your son is a true hero in my eyes.
