Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of J Edward Pearsall, Marine Corps - Served in WWII
Hometown: Virginia                                                                                          (Submitted October 28, 2010 by Sarah Lambert)

My grandfather was captured and taken prisoner of war on Wake Island during the start of World War II.  He was held as a prisoner of war until the war ended.  I cannot imagine the things he had to endure in the name of freedom, and I am grateful for his service to his country, as well as all other men and women who serve and who have served so we can be free.
