He earned many medals but was most proud of his 6 Battle Stars and his Purple Heart. He would always correct you if you called him a hero. He would tell you that the heroes are the men that died over there. He was a survivor. After the service he married his wife Mary and they moved to Levittown to start a family and new job at U.S. Steel. He liked to hunt, fish, and do woodworking along with taking care of his chickens.
