Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Matthew Giersdorf, US Army - Served in Iraq
Hometown: Moose Lake
(Submitted September 18, 2008 by Carla Giersdorf)

My son, Matthew, served in Iraq for 15 months as a field medic.  He returned home in June, 2008.  It was at that time that we realized the stress we had been under.  Many people said "you must be so happy"...however, it was not happy that we were feeling, but instead relieved.  Not happy, because other parents still have sons and daughters there.  We are so very proud and honored that our son chose to serve our country!  We want to thank ALL veterans from ALL wars...Thank You!  God Bless our Country and our Freedom!
