Ralph Morales
Author, Respected Attorney and Family Man @"A Saint's Letters from the Depths of Hell"
Ralph Vincent Morales is the author of “A Saint’s Letters from the Depths of Hell,” the compelling story of 19-year-old U.S. Marine Vincent Benore “Saint” Santaniello, based on the dozens of letters that he wrote to his sister and best friend, Lilly, in 1967-68, as well as on the accounts of his brother Marines in Vietnam. The book is a memoir of undying love and loyalty as seen through the conflicting prisms of war and family. Ralph was born to Lilly sixteen months after his uncle, Vincent, was killed in action in Vietnam on March 28, 1968. Ralph grew up amongst Vincent’s family in Jamaica, Queens, New York City, and went on to graduate from Georgetown University and St. John’s University School of Law. He is a respected attorney and active community member in Farmingdale, New York. Ralph, his wife, and their five children reside in Massapequa, New York.
