Ron Sager Scholarship of Honor

United States Amry Combat Medic Ron Sager, Fox Valley, WI

United States Amry Combat Medic
Ron Sager, Fox Valley, WI

Back in 1965 the U.S. was embroiled in the Vietnam War. And there was a graduate from Fox Valley Lutheran wondering where life's journey would take him. It came as no surprise that Ron Sager would find himself a couple years later fighting for his country. Ron served in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968 as a combat medic with the Army's 9th Infantry Division. He founded the Fox Valley Vietnam Veterans Association and was a lifelong advocate for veterans' benefits.

Ron died taking part in another one of his passions, riding a motorcycle. He was 60 years old. While Ron is not here in person, ask any area Vietnam Veteran who Ron Sager was and they'll tell you he was a friend.
