Tribute from Sgt Ernest Correia:
Ronald Norris was my Captain in Vietnam until he got wounded in 1967. He was a great man in so many ways . I am sad to know he has passed on. He was from Arlington, Mass and I was from Boston, Mass.

Tribute from Lt Dennis Dauphin:
Ronald Norris was my "boss" (aka "Liaison Officer") as soon as I was named as the new FO for A/2/35, replacing Lt Doug Turner in late 1966.  I could count on Capt Norris to support me, back me up, and keep in touch with me.  His replacement left a lot be desired, thus doubling my respect for this great officer.
