Milton W. J. RuhterX

Born: October 5, 1921

My grandpa, Milton W. J. Ruhter, was born on October 5, 1921, in Waltham, Minnesota. He only stayed in school until the seventh grade because he helped on the farm after that. He joined the army to fight in World War II. He was hit by shrapnel in the leg, and he had to stay in hospitals in Germany and America. He was awarded the Purple Heart when he was discharged. He is a family man, who leads by example, and he is very respectful.
