September 26th

I dread it every year- September 26th- My best friend Jane called me- Ronnie’s sister said ”call Claudia”
Jane said-“ Claud- Ronnie’s missing” several weeks went by- I think- it was all a blur-then Jane again- “ they found him” They gave him a date of death-September 26, 1969-
Forty-nine years of crying....He was so beautiful- talented- a good person-Why? For what? He loved it-fighting those Communists- that’s why! That’s the only consolation-????????

Final Mission of CPT Ronald M Goulet

CPT Ronald M Goulet was a Special Forces-qualified infantryman unit commander assigned to Command and Control Central (CCC), Military Assistance Command, Vietnam–Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG), 5th Special Forces Group. On September 26, 1969, CPT Goulet was the leader of a Hatchet Force mission of Montagnard (“Yards”) indigenous fighters and Americans on an operation in Cambodia. The force landed under fire during which Goulet rescued one of the Americans from a burning H-34 Kingbee helicopter which was downed during the insertion. Goulet’s men mounted an aggressive assault, forcing the attacking North Vietnamese Army (NVA) to retreat. For two days the Hatchet Force skirmished with NVA squads. Then they stumbled upon a major ammunition stockpile, capturing it after a short fight. Realizing that the enemy would mount a counterattack, Goulet hastily redeployed his men. Shortly thereafter, a rocket-propelled grenade exploded near his location, mortally wounding him. Goulet died on the medivac helicopter on the way back to Dak To.
