KANE - Now the family knows the whole story.
Relatives of Army Cpl. Ralph E. “Dutch” Bradybaugh of Kane knew this soldier was killed in action during the “Battle of the Bulge” in Bastogne, Belgium on Jan. 3, 1945—just four months before Germany surrendered to end World War II.
What they didn’t know until 66 years later is that Bradybaugh died as a hero by saving the life of his best friend and fellow soldier, Alfred M. Percival of Milan, Ohio.
This revelation surfaced last summer when Al Percival Jr. of Berlin Heights, Ohio made contact with Joan Bizzak of Kane. Bradybaugh was her uncle.
