Today we honor Captain Ronald Goulet of Thompsonville, Connecticut, Killed in Action - Republic of Vietnam, 9/26/69 . . . S.L.

Today would have been Ron's birthday. He is remembered by his dear and loving friend, Claudia:

"Today Ronnie would have been 68 years old, but, in my mind, he will always be 23- we were 23 when he was killed. He loved blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream - our meal on our first date! He loved jumping out of airplanes and he loved being a Green Beret. He never wavered in believing that they would stop the spread of Communism in Vietnam and the world. He is always missed and always in our hearts."

"Met Him CCC compound in Kontum in March '69 . . . didn't get to know him all that well. We'd see each other on the compound, talk for a few and go about our business. Couple of beers in the club once or twice. He was well liked by everyone on the compound. RIP Cpt." - M.P.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
We will remember them.
