MSG Merle, Ron 7th SFG 83'-99'

In an effort to notify anybody else out there that may have known my father.

Unfortunately I only keep up with a few of his old team guys, and I figured this was my best bet to get the word out beyond my contacts.

...Until we meet again dad...

¡Vaya con Dios hermann!

Prayers go out to his family, may you find peace in his courage.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." — Jeff Cooper

RIP, hermano.

Thank you for your service.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

I remember your Dad, he was a senior guy compared to me at the time. I did not know him well obviously (he would have no idea who I was) but remember him on a jump because he looked like a squared away dude, you know, what you expect a Green Beret to look like and act like...competent.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

To echo Hacksaw, your Dad was the epitome of what a Green Beret should be. He evaluated my team back in the '80s and his standards were high. My prayers are with you and your family.
