My Grandfather, Robert R. Howell, spent most of his years between the ages of 18 and 47 in the military. He traveled to many places and had many interesting experiences. As the years went on, friends would ask him why he had never written his memoirs. Grandpa always said the same thing. I didnt know I was going to live this long. Finally, while in his 90s, he wrote his memoirs and gave them to a friend. When another friend said they would like to have a copy, Grandpa took pencil or pen in hand, and wrote them again. To the best of my knowledge he wrote his memoirs five times; each time giving them to the requester. In later years three copies came back to the family. It is from the information in those three books, that also include poems and short stories that I have managed to compile a single chronology of the highlights of the life of Robert R. Howell. Whenever possible I have verified dates, places, and events. Some of the results of my research and specific memories, I have included as notes. What I found was that even though Grandpa was somewhere between the age of 90 and 102 when the books were written, the events chronicled were amazingly accurate. However, due to the difficulty of deciphering his handwriting, some dates and the spelling of names and places may not be exact.
