On the afternoon of Aug. 19, 1978, Pfc. Marvin "Bobby" Owen, a 21-year-old military policeman at White Sands Missile Range, was on his way to assist a family stranded on a flooded road.

Thirty years later to the day, military members and civilians of Team WSMR gathered to commemorate an act of sacrifice and heroism by a young soldier who lost his life trying to help others.
