A great loss!I was in country when Ronnie died. I knew him from college wrestling through his friends Kumpf and Schroeder. I was up north and not involved with the Cambodian push. I never knew of his death until after I DEROSed.
What a competitor - what a loss!

From a friend and RVN contemporary,
This is for you, my friend:
RONALD RAY SAGERS, SSG
I still miss you and your caring for the world, Ron. You were a guiding light for the short time I knew you in college. We attended the University of Dubuque together for two years, before you were taken from us in a country we weren't even in, Cambodia. What a shame to lose someone that worked so hard to get through school to make a difference, in our world, only to be wasted like so many others.
Lord have mercy on all of our fallen brothers and sisters from that era.From a college classmate and fraternity brother
5218 Woodbine Rd, Woodbine, Md. 21797
As your friend, I hurt so badly when you were killed. We had been so lucky for so long, I thought we would be invincible. There is seldom a week that passes that I don't remember you and wonder, "Why you and not me?".
I have never forgotten you, good friend.
