    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.

  • 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!!

  • My best friend Ronny

    Posted on 7/7/10 - by Frank Hoetker ffhbun1@gmail.com
    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!

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 7/15/04 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    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

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
