Gone Much Too Soon

Ned Ball was a Junior and a wrestler at Warwick High School in 1961, the year I graduated. We became acquainted through my boyfriend at the time, who had graduated before me, but had been an AAU wrestling champion, and still helped with the wrestling team. Ned asked that I put on his high school ring. He was smart, sweet, and handsome. What a heartbreak to read his obituary after his death in Vietnam on July 4th, 1967. I still have the obituary.

A Good Freind--A Good Guy

I was a classmate of Ned's and was on the wrestling team with him in high school. I am not surprised he became a Marine and made the ultimate sacrifice for his country. He was a quiet, serious, nice guy. I can see him as if it were yesterday and not sixty-five years ago. RIP, Ned. And Thanks for your sacrifice.

Remembered in Newport News

I found this website today in order to look up Ned Ball for I remember him so well. We didn't know each other very well, Ned. We went to different high schools and I was 3 years younger than you. I believe I only got to talk to you once, as we sat beside each other in VA Beach at my Sorority House back in the 60s. You were so nice and very good looking. I just wanted to write a note and tell you how much everyone at home was saddened when we heard that you had been killed. I do surely wish that I had been able to get to know you better before you left for the Marines. May God Bless your family and thank you so much for your service for our beloved country.
