Ralph was drafted in 1943. At age 19, he became a military policeman and ended up a member of Gen. George Patton's Third Army, participating in the Battle of the Bulge. He also was at the capture of the Remagen Bridge in 1945 that allowed the U.S. Army to cross the Rhine River.  His unit was among the first to arrive at Dachau, Nazi Germany’s first concentration camp.  Click on the above link for the full story.

Ralph was the impetus in the naming of Missouri's I-70 outer service road Veterans’ Memorial Parkway.

 At age 94, he is still working on Veterans’ behalf and we are honored to have him as signatory 396 on our petition.

However, today sections of Veterans’ Memorial Parkway are now threatened with being renamed.  Without the Missouri Veterans’ Heritage Protection Act, Ralph’s fight for recognition of American Veterans’ may have been in vain.

So, please take a moment to sign our petition and SHARE.
