NEPHEW OF WINONA WOMAN CITED FOR PEARL HARBOR ACT
Harry L. Hanson, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hanson of Baraboo and a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Vinson Rice, 253 Olmsted Street, has been cited by military authorities for gallantry at Pearl Harbor on December 7 and also has been advanced in rank, it was learned today.

The surprise attack of the Japanese paralyzed radio communication because the antenna on the administration building had been shot down. The citation states young Hanson mounted the building under fire and other danger and restored the antenna, and as a result communication for the air forces was resumed. The Baraboo boy further kept the radio communication functioning throughout the fight, the citation says.

Harry enlisted in the Navy at the La Crosse recruiting center in November, 1940. He has a grandmother, Mrs. Lena Hanson, residing in Trempealeau, Wis.

per Martha Drugan-Westphal (Apr 2003):
"My uncle Harry was a real nice guy... very quiet, polite, and a good husband and father. Aunt Ruth was very nice as well. I lived with them when I was 18 and moved to Baraboo. They lived on Vine Street. Every day when I'd come home from working at the Ration Board, Ruth would have a nice lunch waiting for me. I paid them $1.00 a day for room and board. Harry worked for the railroad, and knew your dad's (Robert Westphal) father, Roy. From time to time he'd stop in your grandpa's tavern for a beer after work."
