An American hero

Island Man Lost in Combat.

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Cyr of Mercer Island received word last Wednesday that their son Ransom C., age 22, had died 28 May (1968), in Vietnam of wounds received on a photo mission. Ransom, an Army Specialist 4th class, had been home on leave in late April and early last month, after serving one year in Vietnam. He had requested an extension of combat duty and returned May 14. Born in Seattle, Ransom had lived most of his life on Mercer Island schools graduating from the High school in 1964. After two years at Central Washington State College, he enlisted in the Army for a three year tour of duty. He took Basic training at Fort Lewis, extended training at Fort Mommouth NJ, and became a combat photographer. Surviving in addition to his parents are a sister, Petty Officer Janice C. Cyr, USN, and three brothers: Daniel John of Seattle, and Michael J., 20, and Toby w., 18, of Mercer Island. (MI Reporter, Mercer Island, 6 Jun 1968)

Not forgotten

Ransom, 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 our freedoms.
