PVT Alvie Wayne Thornton (SN: 39540486) was born 1922 in Oklahoma to William Henry and Virgie Lee Thornton.  He would later enlist on 22 October 1942 into the U.S. Army to serve in WWII.  He also served honorable in Korea.  He would later pass on 09 June 1998 in Willcox, Arizona.

In April 2016, we received an Army Good Conduct Medal from the Tuskahoma Public School system, who found it in their gym.  On the back, was engraved the name: Alvie W. Thornton.

With the help of one of our Valor Research members, we were able to find Alvie’s Granddaughter, Mrs. Jill Corbeille.

The medal was hand delivered to Jill by Valor Guard member, Mr. Roger Martin.
