From the Crookston Daily Times – August 25 1944
(Fosston area) Memorial services were held at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church for Clarence Jordet, who met his death on June 6, the first day of the invasion of France, while serving with a field artillery unit.
Rev J O Javaag officiated at the services and the Legionnaires took part and presented a color guard. Two numbers were sung by the choir.
Born at Mayville in 1915, Mr. Jordet lived with his parents until four years ago when they moved to this vicinity. He was at the time of his induction in July 1942 employed on a farm at Portland ND. His first military station was at Fort Knox KY where he trained in the armed forces. Later he was at Camp Hill VA until the latter part of November 1942 when he went overseas. He took an active part on the North African and Sicilian campaigns and last November was sent to England.
Surviving him are his parents, Oscar and Mary Jordet, two brothers, Edwin and Chester and a sister Mae.
