Elli Benson was the wife of Nils Christer Benson and mother of M. David Benson. Upon learning of his son´s engagement to a woman well below his station, Oskar Benson turned his back on Nils, cutting him from the family inheritance. Leaving Norway, now pregnant, Elli and Nils established a new life in the U.S., joining the U.S. Marine Corps in December 1941. Sadly, however, Nils Benson lost his life on Omaha Beach just a few short years later.

Like many immigrants, the widowed Elli Benson, felt a strong sense of patriotism for her adopted country. Her husband had died defending America, and M. David Benson was raised to cherish his homeland.
