Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of M/Sgt Verner M. Peterson (Retired), Air Force - Served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars
Hometown: Eveleth
(Submitted September 2, 2008 by Debra Labadie / County Veterans Service)

This is a long overdue tribute to my father, Vern. (lovingly known as, "Studley".)  He honorably served our nation, protected our individual freedoms and supported his wife and five children with his 20 years of service in the United States Air Force.  He devoted his career to serving our Country, thereby protecting the right to vote for each of us.  We all should take the time to think of the many rights and freedoms we enjoy, but many times take for granted.  The right to vote is one of those freedoms.

THANKS DAD! I cast my vote this year in honor of your service, love and support.  As an additional tribute to my father, he had two sons and a daughter who also went on to honorably serve in the United States Air Force.  Thanks Dad, for all you've done and all you continue to do!  I love you. Debra
