Final Mission of 1LT Ralph G. Redmond

First Lieutenant Ralph George Redmond was the son of Letitia Redmond and played center for his high school basketball team at Topeka High School in Topeka, Kansas. Described by classmates as quiet, thoroughly dependable and well-liked, he graduated high school in 1956 and received a basketball scholarship to what is now Pittsburg State University, where he enrolled in the ROTC program. He was commissioned as a U.S. Army infantry officer upon graduation in 1960 and was sent to Vietnam in 1963. Assigned to Advisory Team 2, HQ, MACV Advisors, MACV, 1LT Redmond was posthumously promoted to Captain and awarded the Silver Star when he, on June 4, 1964, distinguished himself by gallantry in action while engaged in military actions in the Republic of Vietnam. While serving as an assistant advisor to a Vietnamese Battalion, 1LT Redmond completely disregarded his own personal safety and exposed himself to hostile gunfire to advise his Vietnamese counterparts on military maneuver. With fortitude, sound judgement, and professional skill, he moved from position to position along the front line, encouraging his Vietnamese comrades and remained with the forward troops until hostile forces were dispersed. He continued his valiant efforts throughout the operation and while assisting the Vietnamese Commander in preparations for an offensive move under the cover of darkness, he and an ARVN soldier were mortally wounded by the detonation of an enemy mine.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear 1LT Ralph George Redmond, sir



As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.



May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter
