As an Infantry Squad Leader in Vietnam, I was glad that we had men like Shawn Spratt in our Unit. Shawn was always a good dependable Infantry Soldier, especially when things got real bad. Man-to-Man, a guys character doesn't get any better than that. Very sorry to hear of Shawn's passing, he was a great guy. Currahee Brother! Randy Parmley

Shawn was a member of Charlie Company 2nd 506th Inf 101st Airborne Division in 1970-71. Shawn was an amazing soldier and great friend to the men of Charlie Company and 2nd Platoon. We are sorry for your loss. RIP our brother. Gary Gilliam
