Perhaps the best way to summarize Lieutenant Peterson’s sacrifice for his nation comes from the words on a certificate presented to his family and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt; “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die, so that freedom might live. And grow. And increase its blessings. Freedom lives. And through it, he lives.”
