I'm sorry to hear of his passing. frown.gif Col. Ripley was a man among men; a real mans man. icon14.gif


He certainly proved his mettle that day at the Dong Ha Bridge, and he shall live on through his legacy of courage, which is a shining example, worthy of both admiration and emulation.


The man is gone; but the Legend remains. clapping.gif


RIP, Colonel Ripley. Semper Fi. angel.gifcrying.gif

He earned the "Quad Body" distinction for making it through four of the toughest military training programs in the world: the Army Rangers, Marine reconnaissance, Army Airborne and Britain's Royal Marines, Miller said. He was also the only Marine to be inducted in the U.S. Army Ranger Hall of Fame. Ripley retired from the Marine Corps in 1992 after 35 years of active duty service.
