Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Art Altman, US Army - Served in World War II
Hometown: Lakefield, MN
(Submitted October 3, 2008 by John Nauerth III)

It's soybean combining time in Minnesota, the rows are golden brown, traveling their way through the majestic machinery. My thoughts remind me of Art Altman, who enjoyed the harvest, running machines and all that goes with it. Art is no longer with us, a member of the "great generation" called upon to serve our country in times of great peril.  He participated in the D-day invasion. Art never said much about those times, except to mention the close calls he had survived.

I picked up my button at Farm Fest. I wear it proudly in honor of Art. He enabled me to wear it. This election is of utmost importance, and each vote counts. One vote decided to give the Nazi party leadership to Adolf Hitler.

I wear my button humbly, proudly, respectfully, and ask the readers to VOTE. Regards.

John III
