This post write up is from a buddy of mine Matt Bushong who wanted to remember his friend from high school who was KIA in Mosul Iraq in 2008. We both knew William Rudd, but Matt Bushong knew him the best. He spent years with him growing up and playing ball together. I met Bush after I left Ranger Battalion and signed into the 82nd. What I didn’t know was that we both were impacted by Ricky in many different ways. This Memorial Day I would like to remember my brother SGT William Ricky Rudd. Serving with you was a true honor and I will never forget your sacrifice. Keep em cold brother.
