WHO 13 is proud to salute Craig Downing from Sigourney. 

Craig served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1942 to 1945. He earned the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Craig was deployed to Guadalcanal and was part of the third wave of Marines to land on Iwo Jima. That’s where he was field promoted to sergeant and was shot in the right shoulder.
