I spent a good bit of time with Ralph today while we were at the antique store that he has worked at for the last 15 years. He’s a fascinating guy with a lot of stories to tell.

Ralph is from Cherokee, NC, but spent most of his life in New York City. He’s very proud of his Cherokee heritage.

He joined the United States Marine Corps and fought in the Vietnam War after being stationed in England. While serving in Vietnam, he was badly wounded and spent nine months recuperating from his injuries.

I really enjoyed meeting and spending some time with this interesting character.
