Comments/Citation

The morning report from September 1968 indicates that  Ron was assigned to  the 1st Platoon of A Troop 3/4 Cavalry.  However, he was listed in error as being with th 1st PLT, A CO, 4th BN, 23rd INFANTRY, 25TH INF DIV, USARV.  His gravestone says CO. A 4th INF 25 INF DIV.  Perhapes the confusion comes from the fact that he was injured on August 22, 1968 in Tay Ninh Province and died from his wounds on September 10, 1968, some 19 days after the incident date.  He was a member of A Troop, 3/4 Cavalry, however.
