His other decorations include the Bronze Star, Good Conduct Medal, Occupation of Germany Medal, American Campaign Medal, EAME, and WWII Victory Medal.

A thief broke into his home and stole his Purple Heart out of his sock drawer. He wanted to replace his medal in order to pass it onto his daughter before he passed.
