Frank Delos Tyrrell

Frank Tyrrell

Frank “Delos” Tyrrell was born in SD and moved to Seattle. He enlisted in the Army during WWII and was part of the European theater, including troops who went into Germany at the end of the war.

He sent a series of letters back home, writing about the war, the Germans, and Germany. He also brought home two parachutes, one from the Nazi military and another one that was US. These parachutes have been donated to the South Dakota Historical Society, along with pdfs of the letters, also found below.

More details later.
