Col. Ralph Mawyer Sr., USMC, Retired. (Dec'd)
A Virginia farm boy, then World War II, then a Forward Air Controller and Pilot in Korea dodging MIGs in a Corsair (F4U), followed by jets in Vietnam, retiring just short of 30 years. Not a bad legacy...
Nine battle stars, the Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross and Bronze Star.
