John Ward is a proud American

John Ward probably needs no introduction in Ripley County. But, he comes from a family of proud Americans who have served in various military capacities, starting with his father, Charles P. Ward, who served in World War I before becoming the father of six children with his wife, Ward’s mother, Louise. Ward graduated from Osgood High School in 1955.
