As Ron's Battalion Commander, 1-103d Armor, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, I want to tell his family
that he was a loyal soldier to his Country, to the US Army, to Pennsylvania, and to the City of Johnstown. His
comrades in the Battalion Maintenance Section spoke highly of him. Ron will be missed by all who knew
him as a soldier. May he rest in Peace. He earned it though his service to his Country. God Bless Ron and his family.
