Clay County

Cpl. Robert Peterson




Corporal Robert Peterson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Peterson of Linn Grove, can’t say number 13 is an unlucky one for him.  Peterson, who is one of two paratroopers from Clay county, made his 13th jump on July 13 from plane 13.  He was the 13th man out and landed near highway 13.
