Hunting Raccoons

  • Tipp City, Ohio

Ralph and my dad, Bill Eickhoff,who served in WWII, would go "coon" hunting together.  Ralph had hunting dogs that they would take with them and the dog would often run the raccoon up a tree.

Wounded in Action

    My father, Bill Eickhoff, got this framed award from his Uncle Ralph's estate.  It reads: "Columbia Gives to Her Son The Accolade of the New Chivalry of Humanity."   At the bottom:  "Ralph R. Eickhoff Pvt., Co. C, 38  ....Served With Honor in the World War and Was Wounded in Action."
