Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Captain Robert Smith, Air Force - Served in the Vietnam War
Hometown: California
(Submitted September 15, 2008 by Elizabeth Smith)

My father missed being home when I was born. I was 30 when I discovered he had been highly decorated while serving in Vietnam (distinguished flying cross & bronze star).  I wish I had had that inspiration when I was growing up.  The bronze star was actually recommended by the US Army, not his own branch of service.  Like many others, his story is a small slice of American history.
