Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Raymond Austin, US Navy - Served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars
Hometown: Red Wing, Minnesota
(Submitted September 15, 2008 by Roger Austin)

Ray, my brother, was a retired Chief Petty Officer who passed away 10 years ago. The best thing I can say about him is he loved the Navy and his country. He was a strong believer in our way of life.  He was a 20 year man. Once I asked him if he regretted anything about what he did with his life. The only thing he regretted was not staying in the Navy longer.  Fair winds and following seas shipmate.
