Suzi Oppenheimer's Constituent stories

Edward T. Dempsey

Sergeant Edward “Ed” Dempsey has led an exemplary life both in the Armed Forces and in the community. Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he volunteered to fight for his county in World War II. Assigned to the Fire Brigade, Ed battled fires on airfields and Army bases. Although he longed to be transferred to gunnery school, the Army sought to capitalize on his aptitude for mechanics, teaching him to build, maintain and repair B-25s. Sergeant Dempsey worked on bombers on several Army bases and was honorably discharged in 1945.
