Marshal Charles A. Ralston was my great grandfather. Sadly, I never met him, nor his son, Major Orville Alfred Ralston (my grandfather), who fought for our country in WWI and WWII. Marshal Ralston would have made been proud of his son.

I am grateful to ODMP and those who left reflections for honoring my great grandfather's service to his community. Thank you so much for your thoughts.

Robert O. Ralston, II
