These a few pages from a scrapbook I made as a tribute to my husband.
Ronnie served as a Medic in the Army in the Vietnam War. He received his first purple Heart and Bronze Star for receiving a bullet in the shoulder while untangling a man during live gunfire from a barbwire fence.
He received the second Bronze Star a month later. A land mine blew up 3 comrades and blew off his leg, he stopped the bleeding of his own leg with a tourniquet then went on to give three other men lifesaving medical treatment before passing out.
Today he gets around well on prosthetic leg. In all these years, through consistent pain, he has never complained once. His heart is always on those who lost much more. He is my Hero!!
