Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Sergeant Joe Mussack, Army - Served in World War II
Hometown: Medford, Oregon
(Submitted November 4, 2008 by Christopher Mussack)

My Dad died this year at age 85. He flew as a member of a bomber crew over Northern Europe in World War II. He hardly ever talked about the war. I was able to visit with him a couple of weeks before he died and he gave me his old uniform and some old silk maps he had. He was the type of guy who did what he knew was right, even if it was hard. He taught me the greater the value, the greater the price you must be willing to pay. He taught me to appreciate the value of the freedom we enjoy, that it is worth a great price. I vote to honor him in addition to all our servicemen throughout the years. They were willing to pay the price, the least I can do is use their gift of freedom and to pass it on to my children.
