WWII Vet Awarded Bronze Star

Retired Army Tech Sergeant Harvey LaFleur has been awarded the Bronze Star - a full 67 years after his heroic actions in the infamous Battle of the Bulge.

The Bronze Star is the fourth-highest award someone in the U.S. military can receive.

The Chicopee, Massachusetts native was to be awarded the Bronze Star back in 1962, but a fire destroyed his military records in Washington D.C., according to WWLP-TV.
