Subject: Information

First of all, I want to say Thank you for your service to our country. I have been trying to learn more about Vietnam and trying to find any information about my cousin Cpl. Ronnie Ellis Reeder. He was killed in action on Jan 29, 1967.

Date of Birth:
Date of Casualty:
Home of Record:
County of Record:
Branch of Service:
14E, 96
Casualty Province:

If anyone knew him or has pictures, etc. I would very much like to have copies. Also, if you have any ideas how I could find any information please feel free to email me;

Ronnie was my cousin, but my only memory of him unfortunately was him laying in a casket and I was only 1 1/2 yrs old at the time. I am trying my best to honor his memory and make sure that he is never forgotten.

Thank you all once again for your sacrifice and service,
Darlene M.

Subject: I only knew Ron a few months.

My tour was winding down as his was just starting. His rack was very close to mine. So it felt like I knew him longer.

A prince of a man.

And Id say the same thing about him that many others have said-----the nicest guy in the Company.

Never forgotten

For some reason I did not get alerts to my messages, so sorry for the major delay. I hope you get this message. If you know of any pictures of him while he was in the Marines other than the ones on The Wall, I would love too have a copy of them.

Thank you for your service and I'm glad you were Blessed to have met Ronnie and thankful that you made it home to your family.

God Bless, Darlene

Subject: Friend not forgotten

I went to high school with Ron, was a year behind him at Madison High School. He graduated in 1965 and sometime thereafter became engaged to Sherry, one of my good friends. After he went to Viet Nam, Sherry was one of my bridesmaids when I was married on 17 Jun 1966. She was so happy engaged to Ron. Three weeks after she stood for me when I was married, she received the news of Ron's death. And her wedding dreams were gone. Ron, those of us who knew you have not forgotten.

Three years later, my husband was sent to Viet Nam by the Coast Guard. He served one rotation in Vung Tau and thank goodness, came back whole.

Thank you Ron, and all the other brave men and women who answered the (very unpopular at the time) call of duty.

You are not forgotten.

Subject: MIA Bracelet.

Around 1970 I was Eight years old and on vacation with my family. We were at the Grand Canyon and had took a helicopter ride into the canyon. The Pilot was an ex - Marine and made quite an impression on this eight year old. I had a fascination with anything military and still do to this day ( I served in the Army a Paratrooper/ 82nd ABN). After the helicopter ride I noticed a table with MIA bracelets on it for sale. I wanted to use my vacation money to buy one after my Dad explained what and why they were for sale. I picked one with the name LCPL Ronald L. Longanecker on it. The reason I picked LCPL Longanecker's was because he was from Oregon, my home state, and LCPL Longanecker went MIA / KIA July of 1966, I was Born July of 1962. As an eight year old I suppose In my own mind I could Identify with this. I have worn this bracelet, off and on for the last 43 years. LCPL Longanecker you are not forgotten!! I was glad to find this web page and also the story of his tragic death in the service of his country.
