Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Ronald David Sheffey, 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

THANKS - WE REMEMBER - September 24, 1988

Ron attended Venice High School in California before coming to Berks County to live with his grandmother. He enlisted in the Marine Corps and was sent to Vietnam where he was a member of the 5th Regiment, 1st Marine Division.
In letters to his family, Ron said he was counting the days till he could come home.
Ron was wounded on two occasions by shrapnel and returned to his unit each time. He was killed by Viet Cong small-arms fire while on patrol in Quan Tin, near Da Nang.
Surviving at the time were his mother, father and one sister.
He had only 20 days left to serve in Vietnam.
He was 19 years old.

Semper Fidelis, Marine!
