93-Year-Old OK Veteran Surprised With Bronze Star
TULSA, Oklahoma - A 93-year-old Oklahoma veteran has a Bronze Star again.
Bob Balch said a family member lost his medal about a decade ago.
When Congressman Jim Bridenstine's office heard what happened, they stepped in to replace the medal.
So, during a ceremony at University Village Friday, Bridenstine’s staff surprised him with four medals.
“I really didn't, I had no idea. It's been a wonderful surprise. Thank you for everything,” he said.
Balch said he was given the Bronze Star for helping save a wounded soldier during the Battle of the Bulge.
