On Memorial Day, May 30, 2016, we honor all Americans who died while serving in the military … and extend our acknowledgement to those who died later as a result of their military service-related injuries or illnesses.
A special remembrance to Major Ronald E. Crane, USMC, Ret., (1941-2000), veteran of two tours in Vietnam as an artillery officer, including the 1968 Tet Offensive. He gave 20-years of honorable service (1966-1986) including two years as an officer recruiter in Austin, Texas, between his tours in Vietnam (pictured here in 1970). Marine, we are proud to have known you.
