This rare 1946 Sightseer was donated to our organization by Cathy McConnell, the daughter of the late Ralph L. Blankenbecler, who died in 1988, but who served as a Staff Sergeant and squad leader for Company I of the 20th Infantry regiment, during the New Guinea and Luzon, the Philippines, campaign against Japan.
