REMEMBRANCES

A Really Great Guy

Ron and I shared many classes and interests while attending Killeen High School. Ron moved to Austin, TX, after our Junior year and we spoke only a couple of times over the college years -- he was a Longhorn and I was an Aggie.

While serving on Active Duty with the Army in Europe, I learned that Ron had been killed in Viet Nam. I regretted that we didn't stay in touch.

Ron is a man who could have done anything; he chose to serve his country. He is gone and he is missed, but not forgotten, by the many whose lives he touched.

Lanier Class of 63

I will always remember hearing Ronnie and David McNeely sing in the halls before classes start each and every day.

We all missed you at the 40th reunion, please know that you are never forgotten by any of us who shared our days at Lanier with you.

to Ron

Ron,

I remember seeing your cot outside a hooch in Phouc Vinh long after you were gone. It must have been April or May of 1970 - turned on end with a big L A Z I C K I on the bottom.

... not much of a memorial, but it's still in my mind.

I had never met you, but your brother Dan and I spent countless hours together in OCS and Flight school in '68 and 9.

You two would be Generals - like your father. That was the talk back then, though you two probably didn't know that.

I'm pretty sure we were in Alabama when the word came... I tried, but I didn't say much to Dan that night, though. We only gathered in support, a few of us from the flight class at our trailer - knowing that we could offer some company for Dan, even someone to lean on -- if it came to that. What can you say to someone who has lost a brother... What to say to our classmates? How can you come to grips with the fact that you were flying the same missions we might be flying in a few short months.

Still today, I think of you, and the others. It never goes away.

And never saying anything to anyone.

The difference is, now maybe I can start to reconnect, to heal as well... and it's been over 30 years coming.

Now I can say we were all brothers, every single one of us.


We love you Ron.

Thanks for your service

What place do I (a 33 year old man) have to write a memorial to two men who died serving their brothers and sisters in arms as well as their country. I don't even know where to begin. My name is Christopher Reeves, my father is Ron Harvey and he served with Ronald Lazicki and Franklin McPhail until their death. I have a wife and two small children. I asked my father if he could give me the names of some friends he lost so I could explain to his grandchildren some day and everyone else now that war has horrible and real consequences and that the lives of over 58,000 men and women were brought to a violent and traumatic end so that my wife, my children and I can have this life of freedom. So I guess that is why I feel that I have to write this -- to say thank you for this life I have. I'm sure that more than once these men saved my father's life and vice versa. He told me how he searched for 36 hours straight until they were recovered. And when he talks about their deaths it is obvious that he still mourns for them like it was yesterday. So to whoever may read this, whether you be family, friends, or brothers in arms, my prayer for you is that you all know God's peace and His will in your lives. My family and I will forever be in debt for your loss.
Sincerely
Chris Reeves
