Sgt. Bader's Body Arriving Wednesday

The body of Sgt. Lester Bader, 25, Luxemburg, route 2, son of Mrs. Mary Bader, Luxemburg, who was killed in action on Christmas day, 1943, in Italy, will arrive on the Milwaukee road at 9:45 Wednesday evening, and will be met by the Ralph Kline American Legion post, Luxemburg, who will escort it to the Dupont-Malcore Funeral home.

Sgt. Bader was killed while defending a monastery on Mount Defoncha, Casino, Italy. He was born in Red River and before his enlistment the day after Pearl Harbor, he operated a farm with his brothers, and served as auction clerk in company with a brother's auctioneering business. He attended East High school in Green Bay.

After training at Fort Riley, Kan., and El Paso, Tex., the soldier entered the secret service and took special training at Norfolk, W. Va. He was on secret duty in Attu, Alaska, and in Africa before being transferred to the European theater of war.

Besides his mother, he is survived by three brothers, Mose and Ralph, n the home farm, and Edward, Green Bay; and three sisters, Mrs. Martin Williams, New Franken, Mrs. Joseph Coel, Edgewater Beach, and Mrs. Jerry Baier, Green Bay.

The Holy Name society of St. Louis church, Dyckesville, of which he was a member, will say the rosary at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening at the funeral home, with the rev. Ludolph Jacobs, O. Praem.

Funeral services will be held at 10 o'clock Friday morning in St. Louis church, Dyckesville, with Father Jacobs offering the requiem mass. Burial will be in the church cemetery. The Ralph Kline American Legion post will conduct the military rites."
