Veterans Day - USS South Dakota BB57

In loving memory of my father-in-law, Richard Wenzlik. Happy Veterans Day.

Here's a picture taken back in 1953. Richard on the right his wife, Marge, on the left and Admiral Nimitz in the middle.

He served on the USS South Dakota BB 57 during WWII in the Battle of Guadalcanal and others.

He passed away 6 years ago at the age of 83.

He was a great guy and had a young soul.
