            HTC Robert P. Brennan, USN (Ret.)

Robert P. Brennan, a decorated Naval Chief Petty Officer, was born March 14, 1935 to Joseph and Mary Brennan in West Orange New Jersey. The youngest of 10 children, Robert joined the Navy at just 17 years old in 1952 and spent 21 years serving his country. He traveled the world with multiple tours in Vietnam as well as tours to Greece and the Philippines. Robert loved the sea and one of his favorite places was the Strait of Gibralter below Spain.

During his Naval career, Robert received multiple recognitions, awards and commendations for his service and in 1969 was named one of the “Outstanding Young Men in America.”

Following his distinguished military career, Robert continued his passion for military service by working at the USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial and Sioux Falls VA Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for more than 20 years. The USS South Dakota held a special place in his heart, as his mother helped build this U.S. Naval Battleship during World War II. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) groups in South Dakota as well as the NAVY Chiefs Association.

Robert moved to Las Vegas following his second retirement, where he spent time with his family and cheered for his favorite team, the Green Bay Packers.

Robert is survived by his wife Judith Ann, son Charles (Mary), grandchildren Michael, Alexis, Jesse and Jett of Las Vegas and brother Vincent (Mary Lou), who is also a retired Naval officer, of Fallbrook California.
