 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
The events of Robert's and his wife Rebecca's deaths were a tragedy of unmentionable description.
His request was for a few close friends to sail out to the Chesapeake Bay, crack open some beers and scatter his ashes in the sea.
Other Comments:

He spent a year in HA(L)-3 and flew more than 440 combat missions, according to Navy records.
He transitioned to A-7s, the attack jet, and later commanded a squadron.

In 1986, he was one of a handful of Navy fighter pilots to fly combat missions over Libya and strike key military sites belonging to leader Muammar al-Qadafi, said his lawyer, Reeves Mahoney.

Klosterman rose to captain. In 1993, the Navy chose him as the commanding officer of the pre-commissioned John C. Stennis.
