I would like to dedicate this page to my good friend Ron McAdams, with whom I served in 81'smm 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, 2nd Marine Division for two years, from early 1964 to early 1966. We both received orders for VietNam, he was assigned to 81'smm "Delta" Co., 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, and I ended up being assigned to the Regimental S-2.

It is ironic that we both served in the 7th Marines, and even lived on the same Hill, Nui Dat Son, better known as Hill 55 for over four months while "in country" and never saw each other since our days spent together with the 2nd Marines.

After thirty-one long years I recently found Ron, he is happily married with a family and lives in New York, I would like to dedicate this page to him and of our times spent together.
