New Richmond veterans recall wartime experiences
With Veterans Day, Nov. 11, just around the corner, a few local war veterans sat down to share their individual experiences.
One was a World War II veteran and the other a Vietnam War veteran.
One day prior to his 18th birthday, Gwynn Christensen enlisted in the Navy.
That was in 1943, during the heart of World War II. Christensen, a native of Lake Mills, Wis., would serve his country for a total of 27 months.
