Great D-Day for me in 2016

Post by Ranger Ron »

I have belonged to this website for 10 years this month. I have spoken to Jim many, many times and communicated through ArmyRanger.com and Facebook hundreds of times but it wasn't until D-Day, 2016 that I got to meet him in person. I also was humbled to be able to be a part of the first Nebraska Vietnam Combat Veterans Honor Flight. Here are a few pictures.

Ron, it was great (finally) meeting you. Just realized I have been on ArmyRanger.com over 11 years. Time flies...

Excellent post Ron and fantastic pictures. Thank you for posting.

I've had the honor and privilege to share drinks with the both of you, and thoroughly enjoyed those times. Here's to hoping we all meet again sometime and until then, I wish you both (all of you for that matter) the best in life, God knows you've earned it.
