In Remembrance of my Father on this Memorial Day 2010

John T. Alstrom, Jr. (1914-1984) Veteran of WWII and Korea

Father was primarily in the Aleutian Islands during WWII. In Korea, he lost a leg when he stepped on a land mine. After that he left the military and moved to Monterey Park, California. My parents were divorced by that time.
