  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/15/16 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SSGT Ronald Burns Reynolds, 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

  • High School Days with Ronald

    I remember Ronald from W H Adamson High School In Dallas. We were in Jr ROTC together and I remember he took military training seriously. I lost track of Ronald after school and was very saddened hearing of his death but I know he made a good soldier. Rest In Peace Ronny.
  • Final Mission of SSGT Ronald B. Reynolds

    Posted on 11/27/15 - by
    SSGT Ronald B. Reynolds was a Ranger with L Company (Long-range reconnaissance patrol) attached to the Army’s 101st Airborne Division. On May 8, 1969, while on his second tour of duty, he was part of a recon team on a mission in the A Shau Valley. While serving as the point element on his team, he was fatally wounded in the chest by a well-concealed enemy soldier while moving through waist-deep elephant grass. SSGT Reynolds was a tough soldier and the three AK-47 rounds that hit him didn’t kill him right away. The medic on the team held Ron in his arms while waiting for the medevac. His last words were “I’m thirsty,” then he closed his eyes and died. [Taken from the book Death in the A Shau Valley by Larry Chambers]
