Ed Ramsey is known for leading the last horse cavalry charge in US Army history, in Morong, Bataan against the Japanese in January, 1942. He evaded capture by the Japanese and went on to become a highly successful guerrilla leader till the end of the war. He has written a very inspiring book titled "Lt. Ramsey's War"
These are some of the photos from my camera. The other photos I took are on JR Mislang's camera. Will update the post when I get the other images. And also edit the short video clips.
As we dismissed to return to barracks, a lady walks up and asks us what we are up to. We tell her we completed our honor guard detail for LCol. Ed Ramsey our Bataan Veteran. She thanked us for our service. She was driving by with her friend and saw us. She stopped, walked over, shook our hands and thanked us. Who say's Ed Ramsey doesn't have pull even up there!
On this 7-month Anniversary of Ed’s passing, I would like to announce the launching of version 2.0 of Ed’s website to carry on Ed’s memory. It will be a perpetual remembrance of him by all of us.
This website was the original creation of Mike Dailing with the input of Ed as it started many years back. It highlighted Ed’s life through his accomplishments and contributions to society.
Mike Dailing and Chris Rogers have rebuilt what has now become a Memorial to Ed and a place where family, friends and admirers can remember him through their stories as well as an information center for avid historians.
There have been significant improvements and additions to all facets of the website including new content of photos and video from Arlington National Cemetery, the Celebration of Ed’s Life Memorial program and more.
I am most grateful to Mike and Chris for their amazing labor of love as the website will continue to grow with your photos and remembrances keeping Ed alive in our hearts and minds.
I invite you to visit the new website and share his legacy. Please click the link below to enter the website. Raquel Ramsey www.edwinpriceramsey.com
