Birth of the Purple Foxes

Our Showers and Washing Machine

GySgt. Ronald A. Knight, USMC (Ret) died January 6, 2007 and will long be remembered as the individual who, by exceeding his authorization to paint the Purple Fox known as Swifty on the tail pylons of the squadron's UH-34s, also painted the slogan that remains with us today of "Give a Shit."

The family requests that anyone caring to memorialize Ron may do so by sending a donation in his name to:

St. Patricks School
23070 State Highway 59
Robertsdale, AL 36567
