R.I.P. Col. John Ripley

Recommended Posts

I was on an LPH in the Tonkin Gulf when he blew the bridge. The brass pulled him and some other advisors out of country to our LPH for couple days R&R.

I never got to meet him,but our Grunt commanders said he was one hell of a Marine.

Our whole battalion(BLT 2/9) was ready to go back with him when they put him back in country.

My CO said he was one of the bravest guys he had ever met.
