Lt. Robert Ringer, Service Battery, 591st Field Artillery Battalion
Lt. Ringer, another Ohio native, joined the 106th ID after graduating from Ohio State and serving as an instructor at the school’s ROTC program. By the time of his arrival overseas, he was the ammunition officer for the Battalion’s Service Battery. The start of the battle was the beginning of an odyssey that would last for two months. He would survive ambushes, artillery barrages, bad weather, broken down trucks, and transported thousands of rounds of ammunition. After surviving the Bulge, he continued serving with Service Battery and eventually became its commander.
