History Mystery: Who is this soldier?

History Mystery of the Week: Who is this soldier? (Hint: He’s pictured in Abilene, Texas, in 1942)

‘History Mystery’ is a weekly feature of the Perham Focus. Working in partnership with the History Museum of East Otter Tail County, we will publish a ‘mystery photo’ each week, challenging you, our readers, to answer a question about it. If you have a personal story that relates to the photo, or have new details about its contents, we will work with the museum to have that additional information put on record.
