(KFYR) The tiny town of Wishek, North Dakota is home to about 1,000 residents. 

One of them is Harold Krueger. 

He grew up in nearby Kulm, enlisted in the Marines and went off to fight in World War II. 

He came back with several citations and medals. 

"Presidential unit citation, Navy unit citation, good conduct, Asiatic Pacific, this is Korea," says  Krueger.

But his biggest prize was his wife LaVina. 

"She was the one I wanted. And I got her," says Krueger.

They both went back into the military. 

Harold went on to serve in Korea and Vietnam. 

Then he became a mailman.
