I served with Sgt Ryan prior to going to RVN and in country also. He worked in the Operations/Training office with me in Ft Devens prior to going to VietNam and my family and his family were close. He was a very good friend and he is still remembered in my thoughts and prayers. Also his family. He was killed by a short round from our own artillery because of bad powder, after only a short time after us arriving in country. Rest in Peace my friend and i hope to visit you again when the wall arrives again in Florida. Dick H.
