Remembering An American HeroPosted on 9/4/13 - by Curt CarterDear PFC Ron Jackson Haynes, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Goodbye My Friend.Posted on 1/25/08 - by Lynn McR. Hawkins email@example.comIt's been many years since I lived at Citico, before my family moved to Madisonville, but I remember as small boys playing together and spending time at Citico Beach.MORE
It was a shock to me to find out later when I came home that you had been killed in action in Vietnam, I was also serving in Vietnam the day you died.
I will never forget our friendship.
Rest In Peace My Friend
Bring Back the NamesPosted on 5/19/04 - by chastity bowersIn honor of your ultimate sacrifice to guarantee the freedom we enjoy and many times take for granted, The 8th grade class of Vonore Elementary School made it our goal to travel to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C and "Bring Back the names" of our heros from Monroe County Tennessee. On May the 9th 2004 we reached our goal as we arrived back in Vonore aboard the bus that had taken twenty nine of our fellow students, two teachers and nine parents to Washington, D.C to see you and your fellow fallen soldiers names not only return home but return home together. we would also like to say Thank You for fighting for us, and keeping our nations free I just wanted you to know that you all are remembered.MORE
