  1. Another honorable hero located!

    • Nice way to put it–located. Congress just ‘located’ a WWII POW last week and provided his medal. Sometimes it takes a while.

      • It takes a long time for location or Congress?

    • 8 American servicemen, shot down in WWII, just got their POW medals in April, 2014. Here’s the story–http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/04/30/wwii-era-airmen-among-those-to-receive-long-overdue-pow-medals/

      God bless them.
