Memorial Day

Can it really be almost 50 years since Ralph Manners was killed in action? As we all so often wonder, “Where has the time gone?” Even though your life was tragically cut short, you impacted so many people and your memory is still honored. My husband knows all about you, Ralph. Our children know who you are. And our grand-kiddos will know you too. The world is a better place because you were in it. God Bless you.

I remember Ralph

My Dad and I met Ralph and his family while camping on a Lake George island in 1963. For several years after, we occasionally met the Manners family at the lake during our annual August camping trips and were fortunate to become acquainted with Ralph and his fine family. Ralph was a friendly and good-natured guy who treated me, as a younger camper, with deference and kindness. I enjoyed him playing his banjo and singing for his parents, his brother Roy and sister Ann. Ralph was truly a fine person and I always looked forward to seeing him at the lake.

It is no wonder that he is remembered so fondly—now a half century—after his tragic passing. I am sad for the life he lost, as well as for the one he would have had.

America lost one of it’s best.

Final Mission of 1LT Ralph W. Manners

On August 26, 1968, a C-7B Caribou (#62-4177) cargo aircraft from the 457th Tactical Airlift Squadron, 483rd Tactical Airlift Wing, 7th Air Force, based at Phu Cat, was hit by ground fire in the starboard wing as it was flying close to the Cambodian border on an airlift flight, about 10 miles southwest of An Loc in Long Khanh Province, RVN. The aircraft crashed and exploded, killing the three crewmen. The lost crew included pilot CAPT Robert G. Bull, co-pilot 1LT Ralph W. Manners, and flight engineer A1C David F. Sleeper.
