Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of William Neils Strand (Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class), US Navy - Served in World War II
Hometown: Le Sueur, Minnesota
(Submitted September 15, 2008 by Patricia Fenstermaker)

My uncle Bill was lost at sea during the Battle of the Solomons in November, 1942. He was one of three brothers serving in the military & also helping to support three sisters at home, one being my mother, Jeannette Rose Strand. He was one of the reasons I, myself, served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War.
