I saw you go down that day
Posted on 2/10/14 - by Sgt. Danny L. Chrisler

Ron, you and I had only met that very day that you were killed. You were riding on my armored personnel carrier that day as a dismount in the jungle. You were instructed to get down and walk and I told you to "be safe". Within about 10 minutes you were shot right in front of us. Our medic tried everything to save you, but it was not to be. Two others were also killed that day alongside of you. They were probably your friends. I want you to know that I personally got that Viet Cong soldier that had shot you. There were two of them. Rest in Peace Brother! I got your name rubbing from the Wall last year. You died a HERO in my eyes. Love you man, Sgt. Danny Chrisler.

I have never forgotten you

Ronny, you were my first boyfriend at St. Anthony in Toledo. I still have the notes we passed back and forth at school. I remember the dances we went to at Ryder school on Friday nights. I can still see you in your shawl colored sweater, black with a gray and white stripe. I loved you then and still do. I think of you so many times and thank you for your service to our country. I know you are with your Dad, Mom and Brother now. I miss you and will never forget you. XO

January 10,2005 You were my big brother that I was close to. I was in the 7th grade when you left us, and it still seems unreal. We all miss you terribly. Mom has come to join you on October 31, 2004 at age 81. Sarah a niece you never got to know will be close by now as she will be in the area next month. I had the opportunity to pay my respects to all of the heroes at the wall this past weekend. Love ya Ronnie and will never forget!

ARMY PFC OSINSKI ~~~ You are an American hero whose ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten. Rest well brave soldier. Thank you for your sacrifice and honorable service to this great nation. So young a life, so great a sacrifice. ~~~ "SOLDIER" By George L. Skypeck , RegTM All Rights Reserved (No reproduction without prior permission By Mr. Skypeck) I was that which others did not want to be. I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal lonelinessàshould I fail. I have seen the face of terror felt the stinging cold of fear and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love. I have cried, pained, and hopedàbut most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten at least someday I will be able to say that I was proud of What I wasà A SOLDIER

I never knew you...
but my father-in-law did. You went to basic with him. He never heard from you again and had us look for your name on the wall hoping it wasn't there and that you had just forgotten the reunion. Thank-you for touching his life and giving your's for us

For all you've done
Mr. Osinski,
I would like to take this time to thank you for all that you've done. I don't necessarily agree with the war in Vietnam happening, But I do agree many fine young men like yourself perished in a place they shouldn't have. Your sacrifice for your comrades both home and abroad was not in vein and you are not forgotten.

My thanks to you and my prayers to you and your family
