  • Remembering A Really Good and Decent Soldier

    Posted on 5/28/18 - by Jerry Leverett
    Dear Herd Family: I remember Ronnie well since we went through Casa View, Hill, and Bryan Adams together. Of course Ronnie was a year ahead of me in school, but his sister, Pam and I, were in many classes together from 1-12 grade. I was in Vietnam when I heard about Ronnie, couldn't believe it. I was really sad and angry, can't even imagine what the family was going through. One of my memories of Ronnie was he played football, along with several other local boys, usually on the side lawn at Casa View School; or sometimes on the front lawn of Hill Jr High. He was really a nice, friendly, and quiet sort of person. So sorry you left us so soon. I think of you and your family often. Thank You Jerry Leverett, Chaplain (LTC), U.S. Army, Retired.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Ronald Ward Herd, sir

    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

    Curt Carter

    I remember Ronnie Herd, I worked with him for a while before he joined up. I recall that day we learned that he was leaving, and I also recall the day the news of his death reached us, his co-workers and friends. God rest you Ronnie.
