Rion Causey (January 6, 1948) was born in Perry, Georgia, USA, and is[when?] a scientist and manager at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California.

Earlier in his life, he was a member of the somewhat notorious Tiger Force.


He joined the US Army on July 4, 1966, and arrived in Vietnam as a paratrooper medic in September 1967. He joined the Tiger Force through a coin toss with another medic.[1]

Causey was not present with the Tiger Force during the Song Ve Valley operation but was present for Operation Wheeler. Both operations are considered very controversial due to the reports of atrocities committed by the Tiger Force.

PFC Causey was wounded in early March 1967 by American artillery during an ambush near the village of Phu Loc. After leaving the Army in July 1969, Causey entered North Carolina State University as a freshman in nuclear engineering where eight years later, he was awarded a Ph.D. with highest honors.

Afterwards, Causey taught for two years at Texas A&M University and five years at the University of Virginia. He then joined Sandia National Laboratories where he has worked in the area of fusion engineering for the last 24 years.[no citations needed here]
