Mickey Martins was a member of the 42nd Rainbow Division, Co. "L" 232nd Infantry Regiment of the U. S. Army during World War II. He served as a PFC and earned a Purple Heart during the Battle of the Bulge, in which he was hit in the back with shrapnel. As with all heroes, particularly these WWII soldiers, he said they only did their duty, and were not at all heroes. Rarely did he ever talk about the war.

He married in 1947, and had two daughters, Charlene and Claudia. He had six grandchildren. He was a car mechanic, and truck driver through much of his life. He owned his own transfer dump truck, restored classic cars, and participated in car shows with them.
