Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of E-4 Joseph Balabuszko, US Army - Served in the Vietnam War
Hometown: Brighton, England
(Submitted September 25, 2008 by Pamela Balabuszko-Reay)

My father was not a US citizen but served this country during the Vietnam War era having been drafted at the age of 20.  It was six weeks after my parents got married. He wound up at Fort Knox.  Many of the guys he met there were killed in the war.  My parents found their names on the Vietnam War Memorial. I will vote in honor of him and all of the men he served who are no longer alive.  May peace prevail on Earth.
