Ron was a proud member of the United States Army and received an Honorable Discharge. He served in Germany and then was stationed at Fort Hood, Elvis was in the barracks next door. Ron received a written commendation from his commanding officer for his loyalty and devotion to duty that Ron set an example for all the men in his unit. These two qualities he would possess throughout his life.

In addition, he successfully completed many courses, such as: Hostage Negotiations; Middle Management courses; Crowd Control in Civil Disturbance; Spanish courses; and Police Administration courses. All of these actions lead to him being appointed Deputy Superintendant. His fellow officers and he remained in close contact throughout their lives.
