Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Richard Dahlheimer, US Navy - Served in World War II
Hometown: Rogers, MN
(Submitted October 20, 2008 by Lynda Schmidt)

On the fateful morning of December 7th, Richard was up early writing a letter to my mother, who was only a child then. He made the mail call, the letter was on its way. But Richard never left his ship. Today he rests on the USS Arizona. I hope to someday visit the memorial to say "Thank you" to him. My mother still treasures the letter she received from him.
