Ronny Ymbras made the trek and brought the Stone to the Memorial shortly after the original post was created. It was quite the trek but he got the job done. Don’t forget you can purchase his book Fallen Never Forgotten: Vietnam Memorials in the USA here
Watch the hike on the video below:
A couple weeks ago a follower of our Facebook page informed us that there is a fallen soldiers memorial at the Popolopen Torne Trail in the Hudson Valley NY.
Being that Ronny Ymbras (Author/Vietnam Vet) and I (son/author) are from the Hudson Valley we immediately became very intrigued and thought about visiting the memorial in the near future.
Out of appreciation for the book Fallen Never Forgotten: Vietnam Memorials in the USA they offered to paint us a rock on one condition.
If Ronny Ymbras and I carried it to the memorial to place there…
We are up to the task!
For Memorial Day Ronny will add the names of the 13 members of his platoon and company that died during a friendly fire incident in 1968. These men were a large inspiration for creating the book in the first place.
