Reflections for Sergeant First Class Andy Chacon Leon

I was the other M.P. with Sgt. Andy Leon the night we both were shot in Korea. I was lucky to survive and capture the assassin and he went to prison for the rest of his life. I have always missed Andy, as he was one of a kind. Happy, always smiling, kind to everyone, and helpful to anyone that asked.

Thank you Andy for being there for all of us "Rakkasans."

SFC Leon,
On today, the 69th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just in Korea but during World War II as well-especially as a member of the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment -the “Rakkasans!” And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Airborne All The Way!

SFC Leon: Thanks for your service to this great nation. As former paratrooper I am familiar with the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment. It was an elite unit which saw a lot of action during the Korean and Viet Nam Wars. Your sacrifice is appreciated by your brothers and sisters who have and continue to wear the badge. I hope that you family endured and are doing well. "Airborne All The Way"
