Died May 2, 2004 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom

35, of Stuart, Fla.; assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 14, Jacksonville, Fla.; killed May 2 by hostile fire in Anbar province, Iraq.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Robert B. Jenkins received Navy commendations for his Reserve work on a hospital in Orlando, Fla., and for building schools in Haiti. Jenkins, 35, of Stuart, Fla., was killed by hostile fire May 2 in Iraq's Anbar province. He belonged to a Seabee unit based in Jacksonville, Fla. Jenkins and his wife bought a home in Stuart a little more than a year ago and were trying to start a family, friends said. "None of us thought for a second that anything would happen to him over there," family friend Christine Duerr said.
