27 Aug 1832 He was actively engaged in service during the American Revolution. On 27 August 1832 he made a declaration concerning his service: Michael Rader of Mill Creek in Jackson County, aged 81 years 6 months and 19 days, declares he entered service in the latter part of 1777 by raising a volunteer company in Shenandoah County, Virginia, at Massanuten and took command of the company as captain. They marched to Winchester and joined the troops commanded by Capt. Reddicken, Capt. Bauling, Capt. Nishswanger and Capt. Buck, each with his company. They marched together to Fort Pitt and when they arrived Gen. Hand took command and the troops went from Fort Pitt to Wheeling by water and then remained the balance of their tour of duty and were discharged there. They returned to Shenandoah County and he was appointed a major about 1 May 1778 and marched as major to Fort Pitt, having under his command two companies under Captains John Rouch and Abraham Byrd. After arriving at Fort Pitt they were ordered to proceed to Carnes Fort on Dickard's Creek about six miles from Morgantown and took the command of the fort. His documentary evidence was accidentally destroyed except one record he submitted. [Revolutionary War pension application; Michael Rader, S.7349] At the same time David Bumgarner declares that in 1777 he served as a private in Capt. Michael Rader's company and the facts in relation to that tour of duty were correctly stated in his declaration. [Revolutionary War pension application; Michael Rader, S.7349]

22 Sep 1833 The government investigators questioned that Michael Rader had served as an officer and requested further proof. On 22 September 1833 he submitted a further declaration: Michael Rader of Mill Creek in Jackson County, aged 81, declares he in the latter part of 1777, it is believed on 1 or 2 September, raised a volunteer company in Shenandoah County at Masinutten. On that day he marched with the company as captain thereof to Winchester and joined the troops of Captains Reddicken, Pauling, Nighswanger, and Buck, each with a company of men. They marched to Fort Pitt at the head of the Ohio River. Gen. Hand at Fort Pitt took charge and after remaining at Fort Pitt about a month or six weeks they were ordered to Wheeling fort on the banks of Ohio River about one hundred miles below Fort Pitt. They went by water and there served the balance of their tour, which was for three months. Col. Zane was at Wheeling. There were regular soldiers at Fort Pitt and he saw Col. Steele and Col. Gibson. He drew two guns for his company from Steele.  Having completed this tour he returned to Shenandoah County and was appointed a major in the militia. About 1 May 1778 he marched to Fort Pitt a second time, having under his command two companies of Captains John Rouse and Abraham Byrd. After arriving at Fort Pitt he was ordered to Carnes Fort on Deckard's Creek about six miles from Morgantown and took command of the fort while he remained there. This tour was of three months. Col. Evans commanded at Carnes Fort. There were no other troops there but his, except what military duty was done by the inhabitants of the surrounding country congregated therein. He was born in the lower end of Rockingham County in 1750, it is believed in March. He has a record in his possession. He lived in Shenandoah County a short time after the Revolution, about ten years in Greenbrier County, and the past twenty-four years in Mason County (or Jackson County after it was created). He was a justice of Mason County until old age and infirmity rendered it proper for him to resign. At the same time James Rader, Michael Rader and Joseph Rader declared they had frequently seen the commissions of their father as captain and major. H. J. Fisher wrote from Point Pleasant concerning the claim, pointing out that if the Pension Office would not admit service as captain and major, they should at least grant Michael Rader as pension as a private for six months ["as pension as a private" is in Dorman original]. He mentioned that a note given to Rader on 15 November 1777 styled him as captain and another paper of Archibald Steele, the deputy quartermaster general, styled him captain also.
