Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of HA2 Charles Pietz, Navy - Served in World War II
Hometown: New Ulm
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Vicki Huber)

Charles left high school in his junior year at age 17 to serve his country joining the Navy. He then served in the Pacific as a medic on the U.S.S. Relief. Following his regular tour of duty he enlisted in the Navy Reserve and served as a CB for another 18 years. He served his country, then his family, and finally his community as a Deputy Sheriff, job Coordinator and Mentor for troubled youth, the Minnesota DNR and the city of New Ulm Parks and Recreation. His life was dedicated to civic duty and pride and ended way too soon of cardiac arrhythmia. His family is proud of the legacy Charles left. Thanks dad.
