Vietnam Veteran Honored Today

Today Geoff Baggett presented the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter’s “Veteran’s Appreciation Medal” to Ronnie Byers of Cadiz.

Mr. Byers served as a United States Navy Field Medic during the Vietnam War.  He entered the Navy via the draft in 1964 and was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines in Vietnam in 1965.

Ronnie tragically lost all of his property, including his military memorabilia, in a housefire earlier thsi year.  He doesn’t like to speak about his time in the service, and is somewhat reluctant to receive recognition, but it is still our honor to thank him for his service to our nation, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Marines that he treated in the combat zone.
