Sergeant Harvey A Blonigen was born on August 23, 1917. He entered the army on June 13, 1941. He was wounded in November 1944 and received the Purple Heart. Harvey was killed during overnight bombing on March 2, 1945 at the age of 27 near the Rhine River in Germany. He was with Battery A 67th field artillery, 3rd armored division. He was initially buried at the Henri Chapelle military cemetery at Eupen, Belgium. His body was returned April 28, 1948 to the Lisowe Funeral Home with Legion members standing guard until the funeral at St Cloud Church on May 1, 1948. He was buried in the family lot at Holy Cross cemetery in Mt Calvary with a firing squad salute. The grave is about 50' east of the large crucifix. A meeting was held February 11, 1946 and agreement was reached to form an American Legion Post here. The first Post 478 Legion Commander was Ben M Baus. At the second meeting it was decided to name the post after Harvey Blonigen. An auxiliary was also formed at the time.

A memorial honoring Harvey Blonigen was built recently at the front of the St Cloud cemetery.
