Scion of the powerful Hampton family, his chosen career in the military was sidelined when he saw the true suffering of the Great War. He became instead a doctor, focusing on shell shock, but also competent in “normal” medicine.

Born to a wealthy family in the American South (Virginia), Robert was raised to expect to lead and generate the respect of men. His mother was a classic Southern traditionalist, while his father straddled the more modern new industrial/business era but still keeping the best parts of the southern traditions – loyalty, duty, courtesy. That, of course, didn’t prevent him from amassing a small fortune in various speculative enterprises.

Robert was educated at The Citadel, became an officer, and worked his way through the ranks as fast as his ability and family connections would allow – that is to say, quite quickly. From early on, he displayed a talent for putting men back together, rather than taking them apart. and he was assigned to the Medical Corps (officially designated in 1908).
