My FIL has advanced pancreatic cancer. Not much time, barring a miracle, on this old orb. He was in the Navy, stationed in Cuba during the crisis. When he got out in 1964, he was promised that all his service awards and medals would be sent to him. You guys in the service can guess that they never were. He didn't think anything of it until a few months ago and decided he would like to have a shadow box with all his citations, awards and medals for my son to keep. The VFW was no help at all in getting his "stuff." Didn't even act like they wanted to help. I called the local office of our congressman and asked what I could do. Lady was super nice and asked me to bring a copy of his DD-214 by. She called yesterday, has all his awards and medals, and the congressman, who will be in town Saturday, wants to come by his house and personally give them to him. Ed Whitfield is his name. Pretty nice gesture on his part.
