The War Museum has lost one of our members, John Rodino of Pontiac. John was long a teacher in Pontiac schools and one of "America's Greatest Generation" - the World War II veterans.
John served with the 3rd Infantry Division in Europe and was the radioman for Audie Murphy, America's most decorated hero of World War II. John earned the Combat Infantry Badge, Silver Star medal, Bronze Star medal, French Croix de Guerre with Palms and four battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation.
John, we will truly miss you. Your impact on Pontiac and its people will last forever.
Jack Murphy, President
Livingston County War Museum
