Honoring the Legacy of Our Forebears

Because we need to remember.


World War II has always fascinated the twentieth century. The world is full of books, movies, dramas, lessons, among others that are inspired by the bravery of the men who triumphed against the atrocities of war. We honor the legacy left behind by the brave men who fought in the war and we remember every man, woman, and child who were victims of the war.

The dead do not demand our efforts to preserve their memories. They do not need our flowers and our candles. They are at rest now even without our words of acclaim. They do not need us to remember them—but we do.

We need to remind ourselves who they were and what they fought for. We need to know that the world today is worthy of the blood, tears, and sweat of yesterday. We need to remind ourselves so we don’t fall for the same madness and blind ambition that sparked the war.

Author Noel F. Mehlo embarked on a journey to trace the footsteps of his grandfather, the late Staff Sergeant Herbert Stanton Hull, who went to war like the braves of World War II. His book, The Lost Ranger: A Soldier’s Story, is a historical narrative that aims to document and preserve the memory of SS Hull and the sacrifices that had to be made for peace.

About the Author

Noel F. Mehlo, Jr. is the grandson of the late Staff Sergeant Herbert Stanton Hull. Prior to 2012, all that was known of his grandfather’s service came from a hand-written note that contained a mere fifty words. After his grandmother’s passing in late 2011, Mr. Mehlo inherited his grandfather’s ranger uniform and a single discharge paper. The information sparked a curiosity regarding the life and service of Staff Sergeant Hull including his unit.  Mr. Mehlo attacked the problem using a specialized set of skills acquired over the course of his career.

Mr. Mehlo currently serves as an Environmental Specialist.  Most of his professional written work includes reports and technical guidance. He has worked as a soil scientist, biologist and wetland scientist providing him with valuable skills in scientific research.  He has worked in cultural resources and has taught how to conduct historical research as well as a myriad of other topics in the transportation industry in which he now works.

Prior to his current work, Mr. Mehlo served in the U.S. Army as a counterintelligence agent. He had followed his grandfather’s example to serve. Mr. Mehlo combined his tenacity along with his skills as a researcher and intelligence professional to explore the details regarding the Fifth Ranger Infantry Battalion and his grandfather’s service. Using these skills, he sought out veterans and their families and earned their trust and support for the project.

Mr. Mehlo is married with a family and serves in a local Boy Scout troop.  Earlier in his life he participated in early American historical reenactment, with a focus on early Ohio history.
