You was cool,one night we even bivwacked together. You was in the helocopter next to ours. we, somehow managed to get the tail of our helo shot off and crashed about one hundred yards from yours. The bible says life is like a vapor. God bless you, even tho you was our corpsman you was one hell of a Marine.

Never forgotten
Though I never met you Ron, I feel as if you are a part of my family. I found your name in DC at a Vietnam Mmemorial support site, and decided to wear your MIA arm bracelet and, I wore it until I retired from the Navy. Your name on my bracelet - is now in my Retirement Shadowbox, where it will remain forever. After I pass, my oldest son will display with Honor - 'HN Ronald J. Manning.' Sir, you will not be forgotten.

Never Forgotten Forever
You so young will never age, but your sacrifice will be written in a book with only one page. A book kept in a very sacred place in the hearts of those who knew you and will never forget your face. Your smile, your glance the laughter the fun, you are at peace now no battle to be won. We are much prouder and better for having known you, our feeling will not fade with time as others do, Never Forgotten Forever in View, the book in our heart with a picture of you. Peace “Archie” Ron! From George M.

Still thinking of you Ron "Archie" 33 yrs ago today
Today has always had a special meaning to me as it is alway a time to reflect how lucky I am to have had a life beyond my time in the service. I like to think that Ron would have had a great life too. Instead he made it possible for me and my children to have one.
God bless and keep you at peaceful rest.

I was in Ron's sister company in basic training, in his company in corps school, and his roommate in Portsmouth, Va. We had a lot of laughs and good times together. I sold him my MG Midget when I left Portsmouth. I kept in touch after I left but lost touch not long after he graduated FMS. I learned from a mutual friend not long after he was MIA. I have tried ever since to find what had happened to him. A few years ago I read an article in Popular Science Magazine about trying to identify human remains found at the sight of his crash. Recently I discovered that they did identify his remains. I have been to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington numerous times and still get choked up when I see his name so near the end of the last panel. I still think of him often when I reflect on my time in the military.

25 years later and your memory still remains. You made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Though you still remain in the waters off Koh Tang, my hope is that one day we will bring you home. Your memory will live forever in the Hospital Corps.

We'll neever forget you Ron!
HERO is just a word, but Ron was a great guy and we all liked him greatly, he had humor, and really cared for others. I knew him when we were young and full of life. He worked in the E.R. @ Portsmouth Regional Medical Center, Va. Do you remember? When rotation came up, he got FMF, and in a few short months he was gone. I am not sure why, but he was good and he died young. We will never forget his life and the memories he has left with us. God has a hero we had a friend! I think of him every May, every year.
