Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Ronald Lee Butler.

Ron enlisted in the Wisconsin National Guard in 1952 and was a commissioned officer by 1959. He served on active duty through 1985 before retiring as a lieutenant colonel.

He served in the Vietnam War and is a three time bronze star recipient, having received several other medals and awards during his 33 years of military service.

Following the Army, Ron worked with U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command under defense contracts for an additional 10 years.

Ron has been a part of VA voluntary service for the last 12 years and holds positions with the Regional National Cemetery Improvement Corporation and Military Officers Association of America.

Thank you for your service, Ron!
