A Memorial 

SGT. Richard Oxsen


Our brother and friend Richard Oxsen has lost his

battle with cancer, he was only 57yr’s old. He was a true

“SKY SOLDIER” to the end. Richard and the rest of us

thought he had this enemy beaten a few years ago, only

it raised it’s ugly head again. The second time was just to

much for him. Richard hooked-up with Charlie 4th of the

503d 173rd ABN in June of 1968. His award’s include the

Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Army Air Medal, along

with C.I.B. and Jump Wings. His uncanny humor and wit,

will surely be missed.
