In Memory of CPL Rickey Leroy Scott ........ Medic
A "Currahee Brother" who was killed in action (KIA) while attempting to assist a fallen brother. This young new "Medic" was attached to Charlie Co. from HHC and had been "In-Country" less than 30 days. In the face of heavy enemy fire, he simply saw a need and went to perform his job. Another one of "America's Finest" young men who's life was cut far too short! See the link down below on this page for the full story. . .
