Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Carl Swenson, US Army - Served in World War II
Hometown: Svea, Minnesota
(Submitted October 3, 2008 by Connie Kallevig-Munson)

I am honoring my Grandfather's brother, Carl Swenson, who took my Grandfather's draft card and went to war in place of my grandfather, Alvin. Carl felt that since my Grandfather had a wife and a child, it was better for him to go. My vote will honor Carl and his sacrifice for his brother.
