Harold Leslie Lockwood was born on November 19, 1923 to Leslie and Pearl (Houser) Lockwood in Primghar, IA.  He was baptized and confirmed in the Christian Faith and graduated from Primghar High School.  Harold was drafted into the United States Army on November 21, 1944 and served his country during WWII.  Harold received a check for thirty-five dollars a month for his service to his country.  He received the Eame Campaign Medal with 1 Bronze Star, Good Conduct Medal, and a World War II Victory Medal and was honorably discharged from service on December 30, 1945.  While in the Army, Harold was also a Golden Glove Boxer.
