Russell served in the Army during WW2.  Drafted out of high school in Sioux City in ’43. Army medic.  Served at the Battle of Bulge. Served until ’46. Is a bronze star recipient but didn’t even know he was awarded it until 10-11 years ago when some guy gathering his records found it in his file. Has bad frost bite from going in to get guys out from front in the Battle of the Bulge that he has no feeling slow his knees and it gets worse every year.

Thank you for your service Russell.
