Sailor Killed in Raid on Pearl Harbor Finally Comes Home To Southern Minnesota.
Glaydon Iverson was killed in action aboard the battleship USS Oklahoma, during the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor in 1941. He was a resident of Emmons.
His remains went unidentified for 75 years, until recently, when the Navy was able to positively identify him using DNA.
This Thursday the motorcade is expected to pass through the northern county line just before 3 p.m., arriving in Albert Lea around 3:15 p.m.
Residents are invited to come out along Bridge Av, Fountain St or along Broadway Av N and show your respect for Glaydon.
A memorial service will be held for Iverson at 1:30 p.m. May 27 in the Emmons Lutheran Church, just south of Albert Lea.
