(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Lars Sandstrom)

My dad served as a lieutenant on two destroyers, the USS Bristol and the USS Kendrick.  His ship provided battleship escort in the Mediterranean Sea during WW II, primarily off the coast of Italy and Africa. He continued his service to our country by serving on the Rockford, Illinois draft board during the Vietnam War era.
