General Ridgeway autograph from 1979

Great photo,Ridgway served with distinction in WWII with the 82nd Airborne and in Korea as the Commander of the 8th Army. He retired from service in 1955.
This photo is one of the reasons that Ridgway earned the nickname of "Old Iron Tits" with most GIs thinking that he had grenades strapped to each side of his combat suspenders. The reality is that one of those spots was covered with his airborne first aid packet.
