    Dear Captain Ronald Ralph Beaman, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    It doesn't seem possible that nearly forty five years have passed. You gave your life to retrieve an allied fallen soldier with no regard to the danger. It's what great men and leaders do...lifting up those in need. You have left an indelible mark in the hearts of those who knew and loved you. Jan and Babe (Frankie) , George and Guy Jr., saw to it that you will be remembered and honored in your hometown for perpetuity. Looking forward to be re-united with you when our earthly lives are finished.

    You have never been forgotten. We met at a church camp in the 8th grade,and then went to Pepperdine and fell in love. You are truly a hero & a very special man. Rest in peace.

  • If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Ronald Ralph BEAMAN, USA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchnace, may therein comfort you.
  • My Big Brother!!

    It is hard to describe how it was to be the 'little sister' to Ronny Beaman! Teased, ignored, but more than anything 'protected'. Much more than I ever knew. Because being Ronny's little sister (mind you only 19 months separated us), it was "HANDS OFF" to all of his buddies (and then some other not so good buddies). Now. my brother was VERY popular and had the coolest of buddies, and I often wondered why they never asked me out (thought I just wasn't 'cool' enough-- til one day, one of them told me --- NO WAY could we ask you out. Ronny told us ALL -- I know you guys too well and know what you are after ----DO NOT TOUCH OR GO NEAR MY SISTER!!!! And like good friends they never did -- much to my dismay. He was a wonderful brother, and with today being his birhday (would have been 69) so many memories flood me and I just wish I could tell you all the wonderful things he was to me and those around him. But I'll save some for later. Thank you, Ronny for caring so much!!

    Ronny will always be my best friend. Our special bond goes far back to the 1950's. As kids, and then teenagers growing into young men, we shared all the usual fun, especially as little league teammates. I miss him every day. Rest in Peace my dear friend!

    Ronald, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we have today.

    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
