Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of 1st Lt Jeffrey Pratt, Army National Guard - Serving in Iraqi Freedom
Hometown: Owatonna, MN
(Submitted September 29, 2008 by Karen Knudson-Ibberson)

Jeff spent the year of 2005 in Iraq.  He left behind a wife and three boys. Last year he was scheduled to return to Iraq, but was allowed medical leave, due to his 14 year old son's brain cancer.  Jeff is now serving a year in Kuwait.  Early next year he will be joined by his brother-in-law, his wife's brother.  Jeff has willingly sacrificed over 2 years of being with his family and watching them grow and mature into fine young men.  He has set an example for them - one of dedication and love of country.  He is serving half a world away.  All you have to do is walk to your nearest polling place and cast your vote.  Show him and his fellow soldiers that what they do to protect our freedoms is truly appreciated.
