Long ago...not forgotten

2015

Uncle Ronald,

I was a child when you left for Vietnam. I remember your letters home to my dad (your brother-in-law). You used to ask my dad how many 'bad guys' he had caught (my dad was a police officer in our town). Dad would write you back and so it went. You had always wanted to be a soldier and you posed as a child with a WWI helmet on a hot dusty day on the street in front of your house.

I remember some of your cousins telling me about the rubber band guns you used to love to play with and your exploring trips along the railroad tracks...and the hunting and fishing you loved....

You never had children or a wife - but you had lots of nieces and nephews and we will never forget you. Your brothers and sisters are all gone now. I am sure you are all reunited...(your brother Gene, sister Helen, sister Shirley, sister Betty)...they never forgot you and we will never forget you.

I have grandchildren now and I talk about you often. I told them I went a few years ago to D.C. and visited the war memorial...saw your name and all the other names of our bravest and best.......very emotional.

It has been almost 50 years since you died...I am no longer a child, but every time I see your picture or hear about another young man from America dying I think of you and the heartache that touches a family that only they know about......I appreciate my freedoms because of soldiers like you and very proud of the way you helped get injured soldiers off the battlefield before you died.....

I love you Ronald.......your niece Vickie

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Ronald Lee Watson, 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
