Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Navy Lieutenant Gary Gustavson, Navy - Served in Vietnam
Hometown: Olivia, Minnesota
(Submitted October 20, 2008 by J. Walker)

Gary served in the Navy Mobile Riverine forces in Vietnam for two years.  He served with honor and distinction as an officer and holds that time with his friends there very dear.  He and all service people who defended our country when called upon deserve our gratitude and praise.  It was especially difficult for all those who served in Vietnam because there was no welcome when they got home.  They came home to a nation that had not only turned against the war, but the men who were sent to fight it.  They were treated with disdain and for that alone we need to honor all our Vietnam veterans.  Gary is a great Minnesotan, and a great man.
