Sp/4 RONNIE GUYER

Headquarters, Headquarters Company
1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry
IA DRANG S-1 Personnel Clerk
Landing Zone Falcon


On the first day of battle our 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry S-2 Intelligence Officer Capt. TOM METSKER was abruptly thrown face down onto Major BRUCE CRANDALL's Huey Helicopter by an enemy North Vietnamese AK-47 round at the Battle of IA DRANG's Landing Zone X-Ray ...as depicted in "WE WERE SOLDIERS."


http://www.WeWereSoldiers.com
(Paramount Pictures "WE WERE SOLDIERS" Website)


...3 air minutes later I and 3 other SkyTroopers helped pull Capt. METSKER's body off at IA DRANG's Landing Zone Falcon, while I ID'ed him. We were then going to carry a sideways face down Capt. METSKER in a 4-cornered poncho from Major CRANDALL's Huey helicopter ...either to our nearby Battalion Aid Station if alive or over to a another Huey Helicopter bound for Pleiku Airstrip for body processing if confirmed dead.

Not knowing precisely where to take him, we had to stop while I ran to get a Battalion Medic Lieutenant to check for a pulse, to determine Capt. METSKER's status. With a negative shake of a Medic's head we knew exactly where to take our TOM.

(Capt. TOM METSKER Family Photo)


It wasn't till 37 years later that Major BRUCE CRANDALL was advised by us that Capt. TOM METSKER was confirmed already Killed in Action when pulled from BRUCE's Huey helicopter. BRUCE was appearing with his youngest son on The MICHAEL MEDVID National Talk Radio Show to promote the opening of "WE WERE SOLDIERS" in theaters nationwide. It was a pleasure talking with Major CRANDALL again, under much happier circumstances..?
