In remembrance of my cousin.
He was a great person, who always looked out for others, and always thought of others first.

I just wanted to know if anyone who reads this, may have known my cousin when he was in Nam. I just wanted to know how he got killed. It would take a lot of relief and a lot of pain and wondering if I knew, because I loved my cousin.
He was great person and for him to die and not know how, causes a lot of pain and suffering. He went to Vietnam when he got out of school and never had the chance to grow up and have a family of his own.
I just wish I could find someone who was in Nam with him but I don't know where to look.
Well, Ronny, I just want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, I think about you all the time, not a day goes by without thinking of you.
You are my one true angel.

To a fallen hero:
I'm just here sitting thinking of you on this Memorial Day. It's looking like rain today. I wanted to let you know that you are not forgotten. I just wish you could have been here to share this day with us. You lost your life so we could enjoy days like this. I just wish you could have come home instead. Your country called and you went to defend your country. When it was all over it took the people in this country 30 or more years to reconize you and your fellow soldiers (brothers). When the war was over and the soldiers that did come home, they were treated like animals. This war was like a forgotten war. The politicians wouldn't let us win this war. You and your fellow soldiers fought anyway, but not for the country, but for one another who fought in Vietnam, your living brothers and your fallen brothers. Well, I just wanted to drop you a line or two. Memorial Day 2007. God bless all the fallen heroes and all those who survived the Vietnam war. I wanted to thank each and every soldier who served in the Vietnam war. You are my heroes.
From his cousin,
A Note from The Virtual WallThe 238th Radar Detachment was a target acquisition unit which used radar to "back-track" incoming artillery, rocket, or mortar fire to determine the launch position, allowing the launch position to be taken under attack by counter-battery fire. Assigned to the 108th Artillery Group, the 238th was located at the Dong Ha Combat Base. On 18 May 1967 Dong Ha was hit by a barrage of 140mm rockets which killed eleven men and wounded 91 more.
