Lt. Frederic Hargesheimer

A fascinating and well written article in today\’s Strib on a 90-year-old WWII Minnesota veteran named Fred Hargesheimer

If you\’ve come across this after the Strib link has expired, or are looking for more info check:

    wow– what an amazing story of triumph and will. it’s good to see that some good (albeit unintended) can come out of war; even if you have to go back sixty years to see it.
