Pro Patria – Mikko Kuitunen

An unmarried farmer from Hirvensalmi, Mikko Kuitunen was ready to do his duty.

Assigned to the 26th Engineer Company, he was a member of the 13th Division and saw heavy fighting in the region north of Lake Ladoga. During combat on the 2nd January, Pioneer Kuitunen was badly wounded and evacuated to the 17th Field Hospital. Unfortunately though, despite the best efforts of the medics, he died later in the day.
