Ralph Jorgenson was a member of Baker Team, John Rambo's Special Forces unit during the Vietnam War.


In the fanfiction, Rambo: Year One, Jorgenson was the engineering and explosives expert in the group, opposite Delmar Barry. However, Jorgenson was different from Barry because he often volunteered for "tunnel rat" duties, where he would have to crawl through tight spaces, namely tunnels, to find enemy bombs and fix equipment. During one such mission, he came upon a Viet Cong guerilla and force-fed the communist a dead rat in order to make him give up information. Jorgenson tragically died when he became physically stuck in a narrow tunnel, where he was trapped for two days and had no choice but to eat a mole, which gave him dysentary and led to his demise.
