And transfer after transfer after transfer later, Barbara was born into the career airman’s family in Germany.That’s the commitment the family knew.It’s what led Joe Jr., the oldest boy, to sign up — for the Navy.Ed joined the Air Force, like his father.Ben joined the priesthood.And Bob diversified the family further, not waiting for the draft, but stepping forward to the USMC.“By the time the Vietnam War started, he felt it was his obligation to go and do his part for his country, and he volunteered for the service,” Racan said.He was intelligent and an athlete in high school. Football and baseball were his games.Billiards, too.“Before he joined the service he would go down to the pool hall below the Indiana Theater,” Redd said.Half a century later and it seems like yesterday.There were the times they’d hang around on the porch outside the family’s home along Church Street, catty-corner from the post office and across from Grace Methodist Church.“Pat and Buzz had an apartment on one side. And we would sit down there. Bob and myself and Ben,” Redd said. “And Punch McGregor would come down and say, ‘Hey, what are you guys doing out here.
