Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of PFC Douglas Dustin, Marine Corps - Served in the Korean War
Hometown: Minneapolis
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Joyce Dustin Jacobson)

My uncle Doug, my dad's little brother, was a member of Company B, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. He was seriously wounded while fighting near Chosin Reservoir, North Korea on May 12. 1950 and died of those wounds in a hospital in Japan on December 5. 1950, at the very young age of 18. I am proud to vote in honor of the life he was unable to complete, due to his extreme sacrifice.
