Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Private First Class Chester Zimniewicz, Army - Served World War II
Hometown: St. Paul, MN
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Jeanne (Zimniewicz) Christopher)

This election I will cast my vote in honor of my dad, Chester Zimniewicz, who served our country dutifully and valiantly during World War II.  He was in an Army engineering battalion who, along with thousands of others, landed on Omaha Beach, Normandy on D-Day.  Later he was injured and earned a Purple Heart. Also, like others of his generation, he rarely spoke of the war or his contribution toward it. Nonetheless, my family has always been very proud of his service. I never got around to thanking Dad, so with this vote I cast on November 4th, in honor of him, I say "thanks."
