Finally, 63 years after WWII & Korean Wars ended, my 87 yo father, Leo G.
Kaske, Jr. received his Medals - 8 in all. + 1 from his local congressman @ the nursing home he's in for rehab after fx. hip & hand. Family and friends present for the presentation by veterans rep. from the Congressman's office. Thankyou to all who made this event a memorable one for my Dad and his family.
Since my dad's military records from both the US Army and US Air Force were destroyed in a fire in 1973; this was a 3 yr. endeavor to obtain his
awards due him.
