The database page for Ronald Salvatore Russo
Ronald Russo served in the US Marine Corps before joining the Army for the Vietnam War.
He left for Vietnam December 1967 and was killed January 27, 1968 - the day before his youngest son's first birthday.
He was a good man; considerate, religious, honest and a faithful father and husband. He left behind a 24 year old wife and two sons, aged 1 and 3 at the time of his death. One son is now in the Army National Guard, the other, a former US Marine, is a federal law enforcement officer. His six grandchildren would have loved the opportunity to get to know him.
We hardly have any good pictures of him, and if you served with him, please feel free to email either:
