In 2016, Sergeant Martin John Rademacher joined us to tell the story of his 19 years of life. In those years, he delivered milk, worked for Ed Witgen, played baseball and eventually made his way to Europe, where he was a B24 Liberator tail gunner during World War II. He was part of 26 missions before dying for his country.
