Sgt. Ronald Hagen

Funeral services were held this afternoon at the Fort Lewis, Wash. Army Chapel for SFC Ronald James Hagen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Hagen, Nekoosa, who was killed in action in Vietnam Sept. 17.

The requiem mass was conducted by Capt. Duaine C. Circk, Catholic chaplain, and interment followed in Mountain View Cemetery, Tacoma, Wash., with full military honors.

Sgt. Hagen, 39, enlisted in the Army Sept. 9 1948, and served in the Korean conflict as well as being one of the original members of the 10th Special Forces Group. An honor graduate of the Non-commissioned Officers Academy at Fort Lewis in 1961, he was assigned to duty at Fort Bragg, N.C. that same year.

His overseas service included tours of duty in Ethiopia, Thailand, and Vietnam. He also completed a course in jungle warfare conducted in India, and was an instructor at the John F. Kennedy Center for Special Warfare at Fort Bragg prior to returning to Vietnam last January.

He was born March 5, 1930, in Milwaukee and graduated from Marquette High School there on June 6, 1948.

Surviving Sgt. Hagen, in addition to his parents, are his wife, Roberta, Lacey, Wash.; two sons, Ronald James II and Raymond John, and two daughters, Rhonda Jean and Noralee.
