My father recently visited my home in Virginia. He served in the Army but did not do a tour in Viet Nam. He is from Jamestown TN and knew Ronnie. I took my father to the wall to pay respect for this hero. As an active duty member of the United States Air Force it is with great respect and honor that I commend Ronnie for his selfless dedication to Country and Duty. As we stood in front of Ronnie's name on the wall, my father and I began to reflect on the sacrifice that Ronnie had made for his Country. Ronnie, you are gone but not forgotten. Thank you!

our hearts, still aches
Today, is April 3rd - again. I anticipate, this date each year, with dread - the day, we lost you. Every April 3rd, my mind replays the events, of that horrible day - the disbelief, the praying it wasn't true - only, to finally accept, that you would not, be coming home. My faith assures me, that you are, in a better place - you reached, the ultimate goal - just sooner, than the rest of us. Although, many years, have passed, I feel sure, that I speak, for Tammy and Ruth, when I say - Our heart, still aches and has a hole, that will be forever there. We think of you often, love you, so much and miss you. You will always, be our one and only - brother. Your sister, Kathy

Not Forgotten Heros
Dear Ronnie, Another year, another birthday, on February 22nd. incredibly, so many years have passed, since we lost you. Joshua, our nephew (he's so much, like you) recently found, this site. So, this message is from my heart, the same as shared, with your two comrades: "They died in the cold, brown waters of South Vietnam, brave sailors three, Has it, really been more, than thirty years? They're here today, with family 'n friends, alive, in our memories. Special Forces, Navy Seals, Black Berets. Showers from above, tears, from shattered lives, fell, that April in '70, Repeatedly, the question, "Why, oh Lord, why?" Crossed over the borders, from Illinois, to Kentucky, to Tennessee. In our disbelief, we had to say, "Good-bye." I'll sing this song, about America, the Red, White and Blue, the land of the free, To glorify those, in our military - Army, Marines, Air Force and Navy. I'll sing this song, in honor of heroes, our sailors three, Baker, Johns and Crabtree." We love and miss you. Your sisters, RuthAnn, Kathy and Tamara.
