I was there that day 49 years ago

Ron was one of my squad leaders. After he and Rabbit followed blood trails down the creek, there were gunshots and then silence. Over the radio we heard, "We have one KIA." I rushed up to the scene to find it was Ron and helped carry him to the chopper. I came back and eventually located the VC and finished him. Christmas Eve has never been the same ever since.

A member of his squad

SGT Dennis was my squad leader, and I was nearby when he died. Two Viet Cong fighters had tripped a wire and set off a white phosphorace smoke grenade, and SGT Dennis quickly gathered several soldiers to investigate. Many gunshots then occurred, then there was silence. SGT Dennis was in the line of fire, and took the brunt of it. When it was certain nothing could be done, I helped carry SGT Dennis to the “dustoff” helicopter so he could go home. The squad and others searched for the men who shot him. We found them. It was the morning of Christmas Eve, and my company then marched down the valley several miles to enjoy a hot Christmas dinner. My memory is that no one involved in this incident ate much of anything. SGT Dennis was a natural leader, and was sorely missed by those he left behind.

My Dad

Even though I never got the chance to know you, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I hope that as you are watching over me and my family, we are making you proud because we are proud of you and the sacrifice that you made for us and our country.

I want to thank everyone who has posted to his wall for the kind words. It means a lot to me that he isn't forgotten.

My Friend

I grew with Ronnie and the same street(three houses apart). We played little League together and all the things that boys do He was a very kind and generous person. Never had a bad word to say about anyone. He gave his life defending the country he loved dearly.
