Ensign Kopl Kay Vesole



In Loving Memory of Ensign Kopl Kay Vesole






Ensign Kopl Kay Vesole was a former lawyer from Davenport, Iowa. He died as a hero in Bari, Italy, ten days after he was wounded when German aircraft turned the Bari harbour into a shambles of sunken ships. He died worrying about the men in his gun crew. God bless Ensign Vesole.
