    • Ray Amelio: In My Own Words


      from Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh / Added

      Ray Amelio grew up on Pittsburgh’s North Side, and after graduating from high school he attended nearby Duquesne University. Like many young, rambunctious students, Ray could have—should have—paid a little more attention to his studies. It was only a matter of time until he was asked to leave school, as Father MacEnulty suggested in his suspension letter to Ray, “to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.” Ray’s unintended exit from college led him to the navy in 1966—at the invitation of the draft board, of course. After basic training, Ray became a hospital corpsman and served aboard the USS Wasp (CV-18) for a while until the Marine Corps needed him in Vietnam. As a combat medic in country with the 3rd Marine Division, Ray served in the thick of it. Bombardments, mortars, fire fights, fallen bodies. He was wounded twice. “I’ll never forget the sights, sounds, and smells,” he says. “Blood has a certain smell.” After all these years, the smell of death in the fields and villages stays with him. Serving in Vietnam was an object-lesson in adaptation, perseverence, and survival. When life get tough, Ray says, he reminds himself that nothing can be worse than being in Vietnam. This interview is a production of the Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh Oral History Initiative, in partnership with the Veterans Breakfast Club. It was recorded September 15, 2015 at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Interviewer: Todd DePastino.
