My full name is Patrick Henry Kennedy,,,,,I was named after my mother's younger brother Henry Buska. In Finnish, Henry is "Heikki"....which was my childhood nickname with my Finnish grandmother.
Like your father, Henry was killed....rather lined up and shot after his Machine Gun crew ran out of ammo and were captured while covering a rear guard action during the retreats on March 11, 1938. He was a Lt. and one of the famous Finnish Machine gunners of the XV Intl. Brigade. He was in command and was 21 years old at the time of his death and was fighting along with the Mac-Paps Canadians. He was from Cromwell, Minnesota.
