Ray Hexter - 36th Combat Engineer

From John Fallon


Ray made many of our reunions until recent years and enjoyed them. He was wounded during that very cold December '44 and sent home on a hospital ship and slowly recovered. He needed a lot of attention from the VA all those years but he had a job a nice wife and three children , one of whom served in Viet Nam. Now he is back in the VA hospital still suffering from the wound in the chest and has a tube in his throat. His wife Shirley tells me he has run out the string and has just days. Let's offer a prayer for Ray and also tip out hats to the VA for keeping him with us for 64 procuctive years. The VA gets a lot of negative hits from the left wing press but I think they are fabulous.


36 Engineers are rugged......John Fallon II. Capt. USA Ret.
