Sergeant Rathke was drafted into the Army in 1941 and served until 1945 in the Company L, 3rd Battalion, 467th Quartermaster Truck Regiment. Interviewed by Loren Pennington on Jun 22, 2006, Rathke talked about military experiences in the Second World War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original audio copy of the interview is available through the Emporia State University (Flint Hills) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
