Name: Mark Jordan
Message: While looking for a Ranger in the 'R' section of the USMRA Roster, I came across a Ron Rice, an apparent Navy Veteran. Doug Perry has designated Ron as an Associate Member.

...if this is true, and seeing it on our Unit Roster, I assume Bob Williams has approved of some position we no longer recognize as a Valid Member.

...I recall responding to inflammatory remarks made by Ron about a person not being recognized THIS YEAR on our Fallen Ranger Memorial. I explained the quota had been met, after I waited days for a response from Bob, yet nothing was said.

...Later I see that my "inflammatory remarks" were removed while Ron's remained.

...let me be clear... I have not missed any meetings since agreeing to revise a Secretary position that had been ignored. Along the way I picked up being Treasuter when Dan Rhodes left. I stayed at my parents' home helping care for my father from October til April, my back needing two years to begin feeling normal again. No meeting was missed.

...I apologize to those who know I love them as Ranger Brothers. I will not be around much any more.

Earl Singletary was also in the department. I don't know if you know him but James E. Voyles was my PSG while in B.co 75th Rangers at Carson just prior to the 2nd Ranger Bn being formed. 1SG Gooden was my 1SG.

Message: Hey Mike, You've got a better memory than this fellow. My "CRS" kicks in occasionally/frequently now. I tell folks, an, I'm seventy-six years old. I can't remember ALL THAT STUFF!!!

Don't even talk about remembering names. I'll be talkin' 'bout someone and forget the name. While driving down the road the next day, in a flash, here comes the name to this ol' brain gear! Amazes me sometimes! Scary too! Take care, stay dry and warm. Jim RLTW/L&P
