This Is Your Life had its genesis in a good gesture act on the Truth or Consequences radio show in 1946. General Omar Bradley asked Ralph to do something to help returning World War II veterans, especially paraplegics. He said they were depressed and reluctant to see anyone, including their families. Ralph's ingenious solution was to profile a returning hero on his radio program, which created a "voice" for all veterans.
