Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Master Sergeant Donald Carlson, Air Force - Served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam
Hometown: Windom, Minnesota
(Submitted October 21, 2008 by Becky Schultze)

My father is a three-war veteran, serving over 20 years, seven in foreign duty.  I believe the military has helped mold him into the man he is today.  He holds his family, church and community close to his heart.  He believes America is a wealthy country and offers many opportunities, not just monetary gain.  He has lived through the great depression and knows heartache and loss, but this experience made him stronger.  He lives with dignity, respect and honor.  My father is a wise man with strong values and does not force his beliefs on others. Veterans are the backbone of America and too many take their freedom for granted.  I am proud that my dad is just a small thread of what makes America strong.
