Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Alfred Ritchie, US Marine Corps - Served in World War II
(Submitted August 21, 2008 by Mark Ritchie)

Fresh out of high school, where he was a Marine cadet, my father enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and headed off to defend our nation. He served from 1943 to 1946, primarily in the Pacific theatre including time in China. It was this military service that gave him a vision of the world that inspired and guided his life of community service. My vote this year will be in honor of this proud marine and life-long public servant: Alfred Ernest Ritchie.
