RTM's Nick Calderone and his wife, Rosalie, were recently able to tour the USS Missouri and learn more about the historic moment the Japanese surrendered in 1945 aboard the famous battleship. Nick then revealed that his 93-year-old father, Fred, served on the ship during WWII, playing the saxophone in the military band. Obviously, Nick had heard stories of his father's military service while growing up, but to actually visit the ship and see a 75-year-old photo of his dad that he had never seen before was truly an emotional moment. Big shout out to Fred watching RTM in New Jersey and special thanks to Billy and Jerod of KHNL for providing footage for the feature.
