03 May On November 26, 1950, Robert Ritter was reported Missing in Action in North Korea…
Robert Milton Ritter was just 17 years old and a student at Sayville High School, when in February 1948 he enlisted in the Army and left Sayville to serve his country.
On November 26, 1950, Robert Ritter was reported Missing in Action in North Korea, leaving behind his loving family including his wife and six month old child.
The Ritter family was well-known in Sayville. The Suffolk County News published several articles on Robert Ritter before his enlistment and after.
Would perhaps a current high school or “life-long” alumni student of history be interested in reading over the articles, doing a bit of on-line research and preparing a remembrance article on Robert Milton Ritter for our alumni website and Facebook Page?
