The destruction of Dong Ha Bridge - by Col. John W. Ripley - Part 2

It was much harder for him to handle the academics at the academy than the physical rigors of training. His entire childhood was spent preparing himself physically for the endurance required for battle. Realizing how important it was for him to excel academically as well as physically, John became a model student, developing a thirst for learning — and later teaching — that stayed with him for the rest of his life. His Catholic upbringing stayed with him throughout his whole life, especially in combat.

An incident related by one of his privates shows his toughness: on a training mission at Camp Pendleton, California, when one of the men in the unit ran out of water, another attempted to sell him some of his. Ripley was furious. Another incident in Vietnam showed his concern for the ordinary Vietnamese people, victims of the terrible fighting.

One day, when the soldiers were digging in to camp, some wild pigs were making nuisances of themselves. One of the men wanted to shoot the pigs.

Warrior, Patriot, Gentleman, and Catholic, Colonel John Ripley USMC

Colonel Ripley would not allow it because the local farmer probably needed these animals to feed his family. As tough as he was, his compassion was directed at the common people suffering from the upheaval brought on by war. His example in both instances made better Marines of his men. Ripley was better prepared for the contingencies of battle than most of his fellow Marines.

He trained with the British Royal Commandoes in Norway and became a master marksman with their Gurkha Rifles while undergoing more training in Singapore. After all this preparation, he was considered a quad body — a mortal danger to anyone he encountered. At the time, only three men on earth shared that moniker.

Ripley served his first tour of duty in Vietnam in , where he was given command of Lima Rifle Company. He always had his men dig a foxhole at the end of the day; then after dark, he made them move some distance from the first foxhole and dig another one.

This extra work made the tired men crazy, until one night the enemy bombed the first foxhole they had dug. Lesson learned! By rights, he should have earned more than the one Purple Heart, but refused to report all of his injuries, not wanting to jeopardize his chances of leading his men in battle.
