"This morning, family and friends came together to honor and celebrate Dad who was presented with several long over due medals from his Army service. As the guest of honor, U.S. Congressman Tim Murphy said, "Better 40 years late than never."
"Thanks to all who helped make this day a memorable one and thanks to all veterans for their service to our country. Thanks also to Beth Feathers for helping to get the medal paperwork processed and for the melodious quartet that sang The Star Spangled Banner ( Alastair, Kristin, Megan and Doug).
