To our friends in Russia, Ukraine, Serbia
(and all of the former Soviet Union)
MY father...Colonel Ralph H. Major served you well.
As a Major (Major-Major!) at the time...around 1943-44 he was in Persia and Iraq in charge of building the airfields for the Leningrad/Stalingrad lend lease shipments which would be transshipped to you and help in our mutual cause to defeat the Germans!
He should be a “Hero” to those of you who remember and appreciate that effort.
We all honor those efforts and...
.........we did prevail.
Ralph H.Major: Colonel US Army Corp of Engineers
(Dec 15, 1895--Nov 4, 1991)
