The Field Artillery Officer Candidate School (OCS) Hall of Fame was established on 26 June 1968 by General Order Number 115, Headquarters, United States Army Artillery and Missile Center, Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The Hall of Fame honors the heroism and exceptional achievement of its graduates and recognizes the outstanding contributions of these officers to their country and the Field Artillery.
After graduating from OCS, Robertson attended the Medical Service Corps Basic Officers Course at Fort Sam Houston before serving at Camp Picket, Virginia, as a Platoon Leader and Exec in Company B, 6th Medical Training Battalion until he received orders for Korea in June 1953.

Following his military service, Robertson began work in the pharmaceutical industry. In 1981, he was invited to the White House to consult with Nancy Reagan's fledgling efforts to combat drug use among school-age children. In the late 1980's, he transferred his copywriting skills and considerable medical marketing experience to the specialized area of public relations for private hospitals.

He is author of three published novels: Rainy Days and Sundays (2000), The Grail Mystique (2003), and a Posturing of Fools (2004). Each novel includes a character who attended OCS at Fort sill with the portrayal of the school always in the most positive light. Robertson has recently completed an epic Korean novel.
