Joseph Trader, retired Orthopedic Surgeon, will share highlights of his fascinating experience as a 2014 attendee at the 70th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of Normandy. He was one of 200,000, including the leaders of most of the nations in the world. He will explore the reason we remember the Normandy invasion more than any other WWII battle or other battle in history and will also discuss the significance of WWII in world history.
Dr.Trader’s interest in history, and WWII in particular, began at a young age as the son of a WWII veteran. During his career as a surgeon, he was honored to learn the personal war stories of many other veterans. Trader served on active duty in the U.S. Navy, attaining the rank of lieutenant commander. Trader has been a member of the Wisconsin Maritime Museum since 1978. He is also a charter member of the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.
