Justin PefferIf there is ever a question about something that happened in history, especially World War II, ask Justin Peffer. He enjoys history so much, he spends quite a bit of his free time reading it.

But, he still takes the time to enjoy other activities, like playing basketball, jogging and watching football.

Peffer started on BAT’s Dispatch Team in February. He earned a degree in Business Management at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He believes his abilities to communicate and think outside of the box make him great at his job.

He also has a combination of abilities which can make him fun to be around- he can make light of any situation, has a great memory and pays attention to details.
