Proud Veteran

My grandfather has always felt great pride in being a Korean War veteran, for which he was awarded the Silver Star for saving two men's lives. His unit, the Borinqueneers, was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal earlier this year as well. He sees these medals and his service as his legacy to our family and his contribution to our family's name.
