Character Strength Story Submitted by Kimberly, Robert's Wife: "Robert never hesitated on any of his assignments or duties during his career. He was not afraid to speak out (no matter the rank) if he saw or felt something was wrong. He never held a grudge. He was a man of faith and as humans, knew we made mistakes. He forgave others who sinned against him because that was the type of man that he was."
