Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of E-5 (Tech Sgt) Alf Vinje, Air Force - Served in World War II
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by John Vinje)

My father passed away earlier this month.  He served as a radio-operator/waist-gunner on a B-24 bomber in the Philippine Theatre.   He flew over 33 bombing missions and earned the Air Medal with 2 clusters, plus other numerous ribbons & awards.  I will always remember my father for instilling in me how important it is to vote.
