In the service of his country in the World War.

Veteran data included here was generously provided by the American Legion Kubik-Finch Post #142, Traer, IA; compiled and published by The Tama News (date unknown).
Per the Social Security Death Index, they list two Ralph Speers as having had their numbers issued in IA and their last benefit checks sent to Iowa:
Ralph Speer, born 10 Nov 1916; died Jan 1979; Des Moines, Polk Co,IA
Ralph E. Speer, born 3 Aug 1931 (too young to have been in the war)
There are several others named Ralph Speer from other states, who qualify based on birth date. I leave it to the reader to determine the correct one.
