Fun fact: if you have to fly to Toledo, Ohio, the closest airport is Detroit, Michigan. Fortunately, a significant number of my Rambo relatives actually live in Ohio or states within driving distance, so only a few of us had to fly in to join what rapidly grew into a family reunion when the Medical Mission Hall of Fame, affiliated with the University of Toledo College of Medicine, announced that my grandfather, Victor C. Rambo, M.D. (d. 1987), would be one of the four 2008 inductees.

My uncle Thomas Rambo gave a talk about Grandfather’s work, one of several speakers at a symposium on Saturday. In addition, my father and his younger sister were there, and all their children. The Mobile Eye Service clinics my grandfather started are still operating in India.
