US Marine LCPL Ronnie Darnell Adcox, Vietnam Veteran, Native of Henderson, NC.

US Marine LCPL Ronnie Darnell Adcox was a member of the Marine Corps Selective Service and a Draftee, LCPL Adcox served our country until March 3rd, 1967 in Quang Nam, South Vietnam. He was 23 years old and was not married. It was reported that Ronnie died while on patrol. LCPL Adcox is on panel 16E, line 006 of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. He served our country for one year.

Ronnie Adcox is my uncle. He was one of nine children - he had six brothers and two sisters. Only two of them are still alive, one brother and one sister. My father, Milton Thomas Adcox, served during the Korean War and died at the age of 56. They all would be proud to see their brother's photo on this page and so would I.

Hello, this is Ronnie Adcox's sister Dorothy Adcox Horton. We saw on line where Debbie, my niece, was on line for Ronnie. Please contact us with any information you may have. We would love to hear from anyone. May God bless you. Have a great day. We can be reached at.

Ronnie Adcox was a highly respected Brother of Charlie Company's 3rd platoon. We will always remember and we will always miss Ronnie. For those of us who survived the Vietnam War our Brothers who gave their all will forever be with us.

Ronnie was my Uncle who I loved and adored as a child. His kind face stays with me always. My last memory of him was in my grandma's kitchen sitting at the table stirring a glass of tea. Simple but as a child I was in awe of him.

Sgt D.Lemke was with you my brother. March 1 to March 6. Operation Prairie, Prairie 1, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, 3rd Marine Division. 2nd Plt, 2nd to None. We were there together.

Time has passed since we were in VietNam, but the memories follow us daily. The names listed here are forever-they watch from their side of the wall and wonder "Will They Remember Me?" We of 1st Recon Battalion hold the list and Will Never Forget. Randy Kendall.

L/Cpl Ronnie Adcox was killed on a reconnaissance patrol with 3rd Platoon, "Charlie" Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, USMC on 3 March, 1967. In October, year 2000 members of his/our Platoon will meet for the first time since serving together in Vietnam. Our tribute will be for Ronnie and all our fallen comrades. God bless you Ronnie. A great Marine and a great friend never to be forgotten. Harry Hayes, Team member, Geneva, Switzerland.

I never got the chance to meet you. You died way before I was ever thought of!! But your picture still sits on our coffee table!! You will forever be missed!! Brandi Ayscue, NC, Vance.

He was the son of Mr and Mrs James R Adcox, 1848 Garland Street, Henderson, NC.
