 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Cpl. Ladner enlisted on 11 Dec 1942, in Portland, Maine.

According to the men in his unit, Cpl. Ladner was standing atop an ammunition truck, involved in unloading it in the town of Eerde, Netherlands, during Operation Market Garden.  A shell from a German tank struck the truck. There were no remains to be found.

Many years later, the spot where the truck exploded was acknowledged as being on the  farm of the Van der Pol family...  A memorial had been constructed in the small community of Eerde where this incident had occurred so long to honor those who gave so much.
