WWII Vet Finally Gets Medal

A disabled combat veteran of the Korean War and World War II received a medal after nearly 60 years of waiting. A ceremony Sunday in Twin Falls honored the 87-year-old’s sacrifices between 1943 and 1954 -- and replaced a set of navy blues stolen from him after he came back from World War II. Abb Richie also had a wish granted, to ride a motorcycle.
