Vietnam Veteran

Ron grew up in Mt. Healthy and at the age of 17.  He enlisted under the Buddy-Buddy system and did his basic training at Ft. Benning, Ga.  Ron trained as a paratrooper and eventually learned to be a diesel mechanic.  The experience of Vietnam and finding his faith changed Ron and lead him to become the man he is today.
