Scuttlebutt Ep 60: Missing Marines with Geoff Roecker

Writer Geoff Roecker joined us in studio recently to talk about how the search for information about a family member’s death on Saipan in 1944 led him to become a volunteer MIA researcher.

We also talked about his book, “Leaving Mac Behind,” his website, and his articles for Leatherneck. As an added bonus, there was a brief discussion about Geoff’s days as a Civil War reenactor and a possible haunting on the Gettysburg battlefield.
