I met SHERO Delores Ruddock when she and four other members of the 6888th Directory Postal Battalion came to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in October 2018. Prior to that awesome encounter I had never seen a female veteran of World War II. Hearing Ms. Ruddock share her story was mesmerizing. She was very pretty, articulate, quick-wit, humorous, and with such devotion. I will always her with joy and laughter!

My sister Rosenda Moore and I met Ms. Ruddock at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas at the dedication of the monument to the Six Triple Eight. Our mother Lydia Esther Thornton (Moore) also served in the battalion. Ms. Ruddock had the same qualities as our mother: a quuet grace, dignity, a sense of purpose and always giving of herself to others. We are so saddened by her passing and appreciative of her service to our country. Rosenda and I were honored to have met and known her.
