Verlis Finnestad - World War II service

When researching your ancestry, an important part of the past is the documentation of those that served in the military and often fought in one or more of the many wars that have taken place throughout history.

I stumbled upon this document at the Creston, Illinois library. It was written by Lyola Finnestad as a Memorial Day recognition of her husband Verlis. Verlis was one of Ole and Mari Finnestad's great grandchildren and passed away March 16, 1985 in Creston, Illinois.
