Outstanding Graduate and Midshipman Battalion Commander

I was an NROTC instructor during Richard Vaughn's last two years at OU. He was one of the most exceptional members of the Midshipman Battalion, which is why he was selected as Battalion Commander during his senior year. He had what we call "Command Presence" at all times. I worked with him on several projects and learned that he was a born leader. I thank him and his family for their enormous sacrifice, and often wondewr what might have been. Semper Fi, my Hero. God grant you peace.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT Richard William Vaughn, 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
