Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of  Officer Marvin Campbell, US Army - Served in World War II
Hometown: Brainerd
(Submitted September 15, 2008 by Dick Bernard)

Marvin was my Dad's cousin and best man at Dad's wedding in 1937.  He idolized Dad's kid brother, my uncle Frank, who joined the Navy in 1935 and served his entire tour on the USS Arizona, dying at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941.  Marvin, a ND farm boy, entered the Army about 1940 and became a commissioned officer, serving in the Pacific, ending the war as part of the provisional government in a prefecture of Japan. He and many others in my family, both veteran and civilian, symbolized the best of service to their country and community, working for a better world. For much of the latter part of his life he was a banker, once President of MN Banker's Association and always first-rate public citizen in ND and then in Crookston. He passed away in Brainerd MN.
