Honor your hero with thoughts, memories, images and stories.
Alden Synstad is a man I never had the pleasure to meet. Sadly few are alive today who had the pleasure.
My mother was a small child when Alden left his home in Northern Wisconsin to join the Marines. He was killed during the Battle of Okinawa. He returned home to be buried after the war.
I have a simple request to remember him and every sailor, soldier, marine or airman who has given their life
In the service of their country.
