...what 'Operation Inspiration' is all about," said Charles Gitkin , vice president, marketing, innovation and R&D for the John Morrell Food Group . "We heard the story of Army Sgt. Ralph Harroff and his family. It's families like these that inspire us to honor and assist them, and give them an experience they will never forget. Aric Almirola and the Richard Petty Motorsports team have been great partners and will provide the family with a very rewarding day on Sunday."
