<em><span lang="EN">Robert Winthrop &lsquo;Bob&rsquo; Newton </span></em><font size="2">was born in Minneapolis, MN, the son of Edna Taylor Newton and Kenneth Hudson Newton. His father was an Engineer Officer in the Army, which heavily influenced Bob toward a military career. He graduated from Little Rock Arkansas High School and spent two years at the University of Minnesota before receiving an appointment to West Point from Senator Hubert H. Humphrey. </font></p>
<p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">
<font size="2">Bob loved sports. During the Combined Arms Trip, he suffered a broken neck diving into the surf at Ft. Walton Beach, affecting his shoulders and arms. He spent the rest of the summer in a body cast. His roommate commented on what it was to see him rehabilitate his arm while still keeping the responsibilities he had on the Wrestling Team as well as his heavy academic load. Assuredly, his determination to get his arm back in shape was an indication of one of his finest characteristics&mdash;perseverance. A situation later in his life also proved this quality. Bob played golf but quit in 1992 to pursue horseback riding, joining the Orange County Hunt of The Plains, VA, for which he served as steward and treasurer. He loved the all-out charge over the coops on his Belgian hunter. He and his wife Linda raised race horses together, winning the &quot;Maryland Million&quot; in 2008. His riding exceeded his natural balance, resulting in some falls. Bob had a wry sense of humor. One of his classmates recalls a story he told: thinking about his falls and hospital experiences, he tried to come up with some solution; then he turned to his classmate and said, &quot;You know, maybe if I started chasing slower foxes&hellip;.&quot; </font></p>
<p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">
<font size="2">Upon graduation on Jun 7, 1955, Bob was commissioned as a second lieutenant in Field Artillery. One of his earliest assignments was to the Cold Weather Mountain Training Command at Camp Hale, CO. </font></p>
<p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">
<font size="2">He decided to pursue a career in Aviation because, as he said, &quot;flying sounds fun.&quot; Upon completion of flight school, he was assigned to Ft. Lewis, WA. He was featured on a CBS Nightly News show when his unit was grounded due to fog on a trip ferrying helicopters to Ft. Lewis. Seeing the broadcast, Linda knew why he was late for dinner. His next assignment was a year in Iran flying American military advisors and Iranian military in Kurdistan. </font></p>

<font size="2">In 1961, he was selected for graduate studies in aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech. After two years he earned both bachelor&rsquo;s and master&rsquo;s in that field. His resulting utilization assignment was at the United States Army Board for Aviation Accident Research (USABAAR). His USABAAR research into Army helicopter accidents convinced him that too many lives were being lost to post-crash fires. He found that, except for the fires, aircraft crew members would have survived crashes. This fact alone motivated Bob to initiate a program to alleviate thermal injuries in Army helicopter accidents.</font></p>

<font size="2">Through his strong initiative and drive, Bob organized, designed, and conducted many unmanned H-13 helicopter crash tests to determine the causes of and ways to reduce fires from accidents. For example, he designed a &quot;cocoon&quot; to protect fuel tanks and relocated fuel lines to minimize spillage in a crash. Following the design regimen he outlined in his <i>Aviation Digest</i> report &quot;Avoidable Thermal Deaths in Helicopter Accidents,&quot; the Army retro fitted all the helicopter models in its inventory. This action alone resulted in a dramatic improvement in helicopter crash survivability. Thus Bob was directly responsible for the pioneering effort that eventually led to fleet-wide modifications to Army aircraft, ultimately saving an incalculable number of lives. For these highly significant accomplishments, Bob was awarded the Legion of Merit. </font></p>

<font size="2">In the Vietnam War, Bob was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) and commanded a battery of the 2nd Battalion, 20th Aerial Rocket Artillery during the Tet Offensive. He was also acting commander of the 1st Cavalry Helicopter Battalion during the relief of the Marines at Khe Sanh. After a few years in OCRD at the Pentagon, he was assigned to Korea. In Korea, he was well known for the live-fire demonstration he orchestrated as Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division&rsquo;s Aviation Battalion. </font></p>

<font size="2">He was dedicated to his alma mater, participating in numerous class activities. Class parties at the Newton&rsquo;s beautiful Virginia home were legendary. He served as a class officer for several terms and helped organize several reunions. In their home region, Bob was a serious conservationist, working with Linda to acquire and preserve historic property, mainly the Rector House at Atoka Road and U.S. Highway 50 near Middleburg, VA (the site of many exploits of Mosby&rsquo;s Rangers). He was also a successful entrepreneur, establishing and managing a housing business near Quantico, VA.</font></p>

<font size="2">In addition to the Legion of Merit noted above, Bob earned the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, a Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal, an Air Medal with &quot;V&quot; for Valor, and the Army Commendation Medal with &quot;V&quot; for valor. He was also a Master Aviator. </font></p>

<font size="2">Bob left a wonderful family. He married the former Linda Woodruff Draper in the old chapel at Fort Myer, VA, on Jul 14, 1956. Together they had four children: Robert W. Jr., Tracey L., David D., and Maryanne W. He also had six grandchildren. He was a member of the Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville, VA, and is now buried in the cemetery there. </font></p>
