A World War II veteran from Logansport finally receives all of the medals he earned while serving in the Pacific.
Marion Minks sat on his back porch Monday morning, surrounded by his family and friends. It was a proud moment. Minks served as a Private First Class with the United States Army during World War II. He earned numerous medals for his service in the Pacific between 1944 and 1946. He didn’t receive all of his medals until now.
“He had missing medals and so what we tried to do was to find the medals that he had earned during World War II. We were able to get a hold of them,” said U.S. Congressman Joe Donnelly.
