Robert L. Barrows could have been 100 years old today. 

He was born on February 1, 1917 in South Dakota. His father was also from South Dakota and his mother was from Wisconsin. His father was a locomotive engineer. Robert had three older brothers and one younger sister. 

Robert joined the navy before the war and was assigned to serve in the Philippines as a Seaman First Class.

Seaman Barrows death date is listed as January 25, 1942 which would have been during the Battle of Bataan. By that date, the navy had no ships in action so the sailors were assigned to fight with the army.
