In honor of Troy Theissen, US Army - Served in World War II
Hometown: Mankato
(Submitted October 21, 2008 by Sally Jo Sorensen)

My beloved uncle Troy served in the Pacific theater in World War II. He was a wonderful story teller and I'll never forget his stories about fighting on the Pacific Islands. He also helped organize a plant when he came home. He told me once that "he hadn't fought for his country in order to have management whistle to him on the shop floor like he and other employees were dogs".
