I saw this story on the news yesterday which was wonderful. But the thing that bothered me was what has taken so long for this veteran to receive his medals? Ken Abrahamian now has a chest full of medals. Pinned on by Retired Marine Warrant Officer Dan Payne.
The now 90 year old Navy Veteran served in the Pacific during World War II was given the medals he never received, along with the good conduct there were four others, including the Philippine Liberation Medal, the World War II Victory Medal. For the rest of the story, click here
I am really bothered that these wonderful men who served this our country have to write years later for medals they earned and deserve. We need to come up with a system where this doesn't happen again. I can't help but be bothered by that. #justventing
One way we can do something to honor the greatest generation is to donate to Honor Flight Central Valley. Our Central Valley chapter is currently raising funds to a charter planes that will send our veterans to Washington D.C. in commemoration of their sacrifice, and in honor of their service to our country. One hundred percent of all donations go toward funding these flights. Please join us in giving back to those who gave it all so that we could be free.
My dad is a Korean War Vet. and this stuff reallly means alot to me. Let's all do what we can to honor those who've made a contribution to our freedoms. Whenever you can, thank a Vet! ~Rose
