It is never too late to be honored and Clem Gerleman at 92, is proud to show his medals† earned by service during World War II -- 61 years after his discharge.
"I'm proud to get them," Gerleman said. He grew up near St. Lucas and has lived at the Ossian Senior Hospice since this fall.
After initially being denied his service medals, Gerleman's niece, Mary Kay Kock, of Cottage Grove, Minn. contacted Sen. Charles Grassley's office.
"It didn't take much time at all," Kock said. After a check of the national registry of veterans, where Gerleman's record was in good standing, it only took about a month to get them sent. Grassley's letter accompanying the medals, thanked Gerleman for his service and commitment to the American freedom he fought to preserve during WW II under General George Patton.
Gerleman was awarded six citations including the Good Conduct medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign with three bronze star attachments, World War II Victory Medal, Army of Occupation Medal with Germany Claps, Honorable Service lapel Button of W.W.II and Sharpshooter Badge and rifle bar.
Gerleman entered the Army Aug. 23, 1944 at age 32. He had never married. His father died when Gerleman was 11 and his mother when he was 21. The country was at war with the Germans and Gerleman said he felt he had to serve.
Jan. 14, 1945 during the European Theater in Bastogne, Belgium, the orders came that the next morning he was heading to the front lines of the battle and he was to be in the lead tank. Gerleman ran the machine guns and was the assistant driver. He shot 60 rounds of ammunition at a time to clear away the enemy fire for the Americans to advance.
The Germans had been bombing Bastogne since the week before Christmas with plans to take Belgium via the Ardennes. General Patton sent troops to free the city December 27 and thousands of soldiers were in hand to hand combat in the woods and surrounding towns. January 14, the Germans retreated from Bastogne, leaving behind a destroyed city and thousands lost their lives.
Gerleman remembered the men occasionally got out of the tank to look for land mines. In Bastogne, he remembers watching as a fellow solider was killed and another lost both his legs when a mine blew up.
Gerleman remembers that first day how when a German tank approached, they exchanged fire and were able to start the German tank on fire. As the occupants got out, they took them as prisoners of war. Later they trekked across Luxembourg and headed for Germany. Gerleman remembers seeing General Patton him at the crossing the Rhine River on a pontoon bridge in Germany. They had been exchanging fire with the Germans on the crossing and Gerleman's tank was one of the first to cross the bridge, as part of the 6th Cavalry that Patton led.
"I saw him. He was standing along the Rhine River between a Jeep and the buildings," Gerleman said. Patton was talking to the German forces in German, he claims. The son of second generation German immigrants, himself, Clem grew up speaking German. His grandparents had settled in Iowa after immigrating from Germany. He never used his second language as a soldier.
"I didn't want to talk it. I was afraid I'd get myself into trouble," he said.
He saw the Gerleman family name printed on buildings in Germany as he passed through.
The Germans surrendered May 8, 1945. "The flowers were in bloom and men and women were walking down the street in shirt sleeves," he said.
Gerleman continued to serve in the post war until he became sick while at Hamburg,Germany around July 5, 1945. Gerleman contracted spinal meningitis and was in a hospital in Germany six to seven weeks recovering.
He had three spinal taps and feels lucky to have lived through it. He was under a doctor's care, but it was a time before antibiotics and many modern treatments. He was discharged August 13, 1946 after a long ride home on a ship and a debriefing in Illinois.
Gerleman was glad to be home, and never was interested in going back. He worked for local farmers and moved around the area from New Hampton, Osage, Blue Earth, North Washington and lived for years in the New Hampton Hotel before returning to the home farm with his brothers. Only two of the family of nine married and the bachelor brothers worked the home farm together for many years.
In talking with her uncle, Kock said that his service in the Army was an important time in his life, and she wanted him to have something of it. She and Gerleman have been able to reconnect as family during the past few years.
He is the last surviving member of his family.
Gerleman was able to retire on his Army pension at age 65, but wasn't able to be a decorated veteran until a few weeks ago. Now he is as one of the few WWII veterans still able to tell the stories - more than what is just printed in the history books.

From Der Carroll Demokrat, Feb. 11, 1898.....Mr. Henry Timp, father-in-law of Mr. Hermann Gehling, has been staying with his daughter and son-in-law for the last week on a visit. Mr. Timp is an old settler who came to America as a youth in the 1840's and settled in Iowa in 1853. For many years, he has been accustomed to a Westphalian dialect, but we noted a few Lower Rhine expressions, and so we learned that he is a Weselaner.

On August 17, 1998, Wenthold's nineteen-year-old daughter, Joy, was home alone at the main farmhouse. White knocked on the door of the farmhouse and asked Joy for assistance in locating some medication for livestock. Joy could not find one of the medications White was looking for and he left. White subsequently returned to the Wenthold's house on several occasions with questions or information about medications. The last time White came to the main farmhouse, he pointed a rifle at Joy's face and entered the house. White ordered Joy to lie down on the floor and put her hands behind her head.
Joy began talking to White in an effort to calm him down. She persuaded him to sit at a table and talk with her. At some point, Joy offered White a glass of water. After she got water out of the faucet, she turned and saw White pointing the rifle at her. She asked, "Dana, what are you doing?" White laughed and said, "Oh, I'm just kidding." He then lowered the rifle, and Joy stated, "Don't do that, Dana. It is not funny." White then raised the rifle again and said, "Sorry, I have to do this." He had a very serious look on his face. Joy started to run. As soon as she did, White shot her in the left arm. Joy kept running toward a door. As she approached and began opening a door to the garage, White shot her again, this time in her right arm and side.
Despite being shot a second time, Joy was able to exit the door. After leaving the house, she fell by the front left tire of her father's pickup truck in the garage. She pretended to be dead so White would not shoot her anymore. White entered the garage briefly, ran to a window, looked outside, and then returned to the house. Once inside, he fired multiple shots and then threw his rifle onto the washer and dryer in the laundry room. Joy heard White going through her father's desk. From her position in the garage, Joy observed White open the basement door. She then heard him go down the basement steps.
In an effort to escape, Joy got up, entered the truck and turned the key. Because the truck was a diesel, she had to wait about thirty seconds before firing the engine. Joy started the truck, pushed the garage door opener button, and put the truck in reverse. At that point, she saw White looking at where she had been laying with an expression of shock on his face.
Joy gunned the truck and backed out of the garage. White ran after her. He grabbed onto the side of the truck and got into the truck bed. Joy shifted into drive and tried to drive away from the farmyard. She swerved the truck back and forth in an effort to shake White off her vehicle. At some point, White was able to open the driver's side door. He then struck Joy in the face breaking her glasses. The door swung shut and Joy continued to drive as fast as she could. White was thrown from the vehicle into a ditch. Joy drove to a relative's house and got help. She sustained serious injuries, which required numerous, extensive surgeries.
Meanwhile, White drove off in another truck with his infant son and got stuck in the mud. He called for an ambulance from a nearby farm requesting help for his son. Officers eventually arrived and arrested White at the farm without incident. The Wenthold farmhouse was later found engulfed in flames. The farmhouse burned to the ground. An accelerant was used to start the fire. White's gun was found on the washer and dryer.
At trial, White's theory of defense centered on his mental condition. White testified at trial. He could offer no reason for his actions and his motive for the shooting spree remains unclear. Following a three week trial, the jury found White guilty of: two counts of attempted murder based on the shots fired inside the farmhouse; assault with intent to inflict serious injury, as a lesser included offense of attempted murder, based on the assault as the victim attempted to leave the property; reckless use of fire as a lesser included offense of second-degree arson; two counts of willful injury while in possession of a firearm; and unauthorized possession of an offensive weapon. The district court sentenced White to two indeterminate, twenty-five year prison terms for attempted murder, two indeterminate, ten-year prison terms for willful injury, a five-year indeterminate prison term for unauthorized use of an offensive weapon, an indeterminate two-year term for assault with intent to inflict serious injury, and one year for reckless use of a firearm, to be served consecutively. His total prison term was not to exceed seventy-eight years.


A former Ossian farm worker convicted of shooting the daughter of his boss and setting a fire has had his prison sentence cut nearly in half. Dana White was convicted in 1999 of two counts of attempted murder, two counts of willful injury, assault, reckless use of fire and unauthorized use or possession of an offensive weapon. White was employed at the Wenthold Dairy Farm near Ossian when he shot 19-year-old Joy Wenthold, and then set her family's home on fire. White was sentenced to 78 years in jail, but the Iowa Court of Appeals threw out three of the seven convictions and ordered a resentencing. The sentence was cut to 41 years.
