WWII Veteran Gets His Medals

 

More than 60 years after completing an illustrious career in World War II, a veteran has received the Distinguished Flying Cross and seven other medals.

Doug Ward, 89, of Mondovi, Wis., said he was grateful to be recognized and was touched that many of his fellow veterans were on hand to watch Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) present him with the medals Sunday.

The western Wisconsin native flew missions over North Africa, Italy and Germany during the war. After all these years, it was not clear whether Ward had misplaced his medals or simply never received them. Either way, Kind said that after meeting Ward several years ago, he was determined to make things right.
