Rest in Peace, Walter Beusse, Boatswain 2/C

World War II veteran Walter Beusse passed away last month at age 92. Mr. Beusse was an early participant in the Veterans History Project at the Niles. His transcript of his 2 and 1/2 years of service in the US Navy
as a Navy Seabee in the Pacific can be read in the library and online via the library's web site  .

The cover of Mr. Beusse's transcript appears below.

An excellent local obituary, reviewing his many contributions to the civic life in Niles and written by Pam DeFiglio, appeared in the Niles-Morton Grove Patch on September 29.
