"Ralph was on board the HULL from around '64-'67. He volunteered and was accepted to PBR's and was transferred in '67. The Cruise of '68 I met him in Subic where he declared that he was not coming back. He was killed in mid to late '68 in Vietnam and was buried in Coldwater, MI. (He was my first funeral detail when I reported to Great Lakes IL in late '68.)"
