Tremain, known as "Doc Rob" by fellow soldiers entered the military shortly after graduating from Lamar High School in 1996 and was serving his second tour in Iraq and had served in Bosnia. The first impression he made on people was that he was very, very quiet. He was a thinker. He always seemed to be older than his age and people kinda looked up to him. They always came to him for advice. His decision to become a medic reflected his desire to help others. He took his duties as a medic very seriously and was passionate about maintaining and upgrading his skills so he could give those he assisted on the field of battle the best chance of survival. He was highly regarded and known to go out on patrols to ensure no one would be left without medical attention if needed. He married his wife, Tanya, who was then also a medic. They had a son, Xavier. Survivors include his wife and son; his mother, Barbara Booker; his father, Michael Robertson; a grandfather, Simmie Newsom; and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Robertson. He also had several half and stepbrothers and stepsisters. He was 28.
