Medals Presentation to a Veteran

VFW Post 6785 recognizes Korea Defense veterans Richard C. Sample with his missing medals from his service in South Korea.

From Walt Tanimoto the Post Commander of VFW Post 6785. “. . . as a Company Commander one of our responsibilities is to ensure soldiers are recognized and awarded for their service before they leave. When I found out RC did not receive his due awards from his time in Korea I took some time to correct a wrong, and recognize a long standing member of the VFW for his service and dedication to help veterans . . . “
