Marker for Forward Operating Base Robinson
Days after his death, Forward Operating Base (FOB) Wolf near Sangin, Afghanistan, was renamed FOB Robinson in his honor. This marker was made by a local Afghan stonecutter and commemorates the renaming of the base after Robinson. The beret flash of the 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne) adorns the top. Robinson’s name, death date, and unit name, along with the motto “Dum Spiro Spero,” meaning “While I breathe, I hope,” are engraved below. The two crossed arrows at the bottom represent the branch insignia of the US Army Special Forces.
