Mr. Harding was proud of his WWII service in Italy with the 743rd Squadron of the 455th Bomb Group; part of the Fifteenth Air Force. Mr. Harding often spoke that his military service provided an opportunity to see parts of the world that he never expected to visit, and enabled him to experience historical landmarks firsthand. During his service in Italy he was chosen to be part of a select group of U.S. servicemen permitted to visit Switzerland for the first time since the war began. Upon discharge from the military, Mr. Harding returned to his position at Detroit Diesel, where he met his future wife. Mr. & Mrs. Harding together built Harding Tube Corporation and shared a love of travel around the country and to their Florida home for winters.
