One condolence on “Ralston, Charles E.”

Bill King says:

I will miss Charlie. He was always a good friend and shooting buddy. He was a great shot and was awarded the Distinguished rifleman metal. The distinguished Badge is perhaps the most prestigious award in the shooting sports. He will always be remembered.
