Captain Lindenau and I attended Officer Candidate School together at Fort Benning Georgia. Robert was a quiet, dedicated and professional soldier who believed in achievement, dearly adored his wife and children and found it incredibly easy to serve our country with pride and dedication. Prior to his deployment, Robert and I sat an talked of our families, our experiences, and our aspirations. We had began our commissioned years together at Fort Benning and once again rejoined as Civil Affairs Soldiers at Fort Bragg together.
Robert talked, in detail about his lovely wife and beautiful children and how very proud he was of them. He talked of his experiences on his last deployment and his intentions on this next deployment. You see, Robert never complained, he never waivered. He always believed in doing his best.
I will miss you, Robert, but make no mistake....this gentlemen, father, husband, and soldier will be missed dearly!

Capt. Robert Lindenau- or Uncle Bobby as i call him, was the greatest man have ever met in my entire life. He had so much love for life&&his family. I dont even know how many times we just sat up late at night talking about life && things that i wanted to accomplish in my life. He was always there for me, no matter what. He was such a down to earth, laid back man who could just make you laugh till your stomach hurt. His smile could lighten a room.&& his voice was absolutley amazing. We would sit around && listen to Flogging Molly all afternoon. He could also play a mean guitar.=]] I could listen to him play all day long. He will be greatly missed&& was loved by many. I love you Uncle&& i miss you so much already. You were/are my biggest hero. I love you so much. Ill be sure to take care of the kids. && will be sure to let them know that their daddy was a hero&& died makin a difference in this world. I love you Uncle.
