Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of E-6 Staff Sergeant Hershel Sommerville, Army - Served in World War II
(Submitted October 8, 2008 by Diane Zellmer)

I vote in honor of my father, SSG Hershel Somerville, who proudly served in the U.S. Army during WWII.  He fought in Germany. His unit also was one that freed prisoners of war from a concentration camp.  He received honors, including the Purple Heart.  My father was a proud American and flew a flag in his yard until the day he died. He taught us all how lucky and proud we should be to be Americans.  I love and miss you!
