Thanks for stopping by.

  2. This is not him - but we honor his service also.

    There are maybe 10 possibles. I think if I have time, I will further investigate a Kenneth H Nelson (b. 1917) - who's enlistment record indicates "Reserves - exclusive of Regular Army Reserve and Officers of the Officers Reserve Corps on active duty under the Thomason Act (Officers and Enlisted Men -- O.R.C. and E.R.C., and Nurses-Reserve Status)".

  3. Yes I looked through the Kenneth Nelsons...there are a few just in Minnesota.
    The link to the gentleman that was with the Carlson Raiders was very interesting, a good read on Veterans Day! :)

    2. I may have found his granddaughter Meghann on Facebook I sent her a message. We will see what happens next. The photo in the obit sure looks like it is the same person.

  5. Hello!! You contacted my daughter Meghann via Facebook and she was so thrilled!! However, this isn't a picture of her grandpa Ken Nelson (my dad!!) He was in the military, but didn't wear glasses in his military photo.
    I will send you an email with his photo - as I am unable to load it here!!
    These old photos are great! What fun to have them and research them.
    thanks!!

  6. Hi Connie

    Attached is the photo of my dad - Ken(ny) Nelson.

    This was taken around 1945 (we think)

    It is so fun to look through all of your old photos and Full Circle's!!

    thanks for trying to connect the dots for photo 2415 - however, he is not OUR Kenny!!

    thanks
