Ron, a sergeant in the US Army, served in Iraq from 2006-2007 with 1st Battalion 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division “Big Red One” based out of Al Assad Air Base in Al-Anbar Province. Their mission was route clearance and convoy security. Ron and his comrades faced daily IEDs, Small Arms Fire, and RPG attacks.
After returning, Ron worked hard to put himself through school at SLU to earn his bachelor’s degree in emergency management. Ron fell on some tough times financially when his car needed repairs.
Songs4Soldiers was able to partner with T & M Automotive, Inc in Columbia, IL, to get the necessary car repairs. We also helped with some of his other monthly expenses to give him the opportunity to focus on his education.
