Vernard Leroy Brintzenhofe USMC (deceased)

Vern was born in Struthers, Ohio in 1925 and joined the Marines in 1942. After constructing airfields on Samoa and New Caledonia, he survived the battle of the Coral Sea aboard ship before landing at Guadalcanal in mid 1942. There, he experienced numerous air raids while building four airstrips at Henderson Field. Vern participated in the invasion of Saipan and went on to Iwo Jima. During the 3rd day at Iwo, he was wounded by mortar fire and evacuated to the hospital at Pearl Harbor. From there, he soon returned to the 4th Division and began training for the invasion of Japan when the war ended. After being honorably discharged as a Corporal in 1946, he attended Youngstown College in Ohio, after which he worked for the Army Corps of Engineers until his retirement in 1981. Sadly we have been told by the family that Vernard Leroy Brintzenhofe passed away Tuesday morning 12th April 2011.
