Stories of Family Heroes: Ralph Andermann and the US Army Signal Corps
Posted by susanmayer on 07/19/16
Ron Andermann joins us for episode three to relate how his father's service in the US Army Signal Corps helped with the development of radar during World War II. Ron brought some of his father's medals, insignia, documents and his uniform in on recording day. It was interesting to see these items up close. I hope you enjoy this interesting look at how the Army served the nation and the world on the home front.
