Received this note from Shelia Dudley.  Please read and assist as you are able.

Rangers and Supporters:

CPT Neil Markey, Engineer for 2/75, is leading the effort in construction of the 2/75 Memorial Project.  He is in the design phase right now and our own Dan and Timothy Gay, Thomas and Hutton Engineering (Savannah) is assisting with the design.  Terri Rudacille (needs no introduction) has volunteered to assist with the formation of the Non Profit and follow up work.  George Summerell, Chatham Steel ( Savannah) is getting contacts for the dagger construction and Jim Fogarty, Depue Monument (Savannah), is investigating suppliers of stone for the project.  Lynn Towne, Arlie Nethken and I (West Coast, East Coast, and Alaska) are gathering Veteran and Civilian support for this project.  

I mention these contributors, because as you can see, this is not just a 2/75 Memorial, it is a “Ranger” Memorial and we are all in this together.  We are all eager to see a 2/75 Memorial befitting of the sacrifices of our Rangers killed in action and training.  I can only relate to my experience at 1/75 about what a healing place the Memorial can be.  It is a reminder to our Families that we will not forget and the Memorial will always be a place for them to come and celebrate their loved one’s memory.  It is also a healing place for our current Rangers as they remember their battle buddies.  

I ask your support by contacting CPT Markey ( or myself, Shelia Dudley ( and letting us know how you would like to help.

Rangers Lead the Way!  SD
