WWII Veteran's Family Receives Medals for Service

Charles Lydian Sr. served three years as a general service engineer in World War II, building roads and supplying ammunition, regularly in a combat zone. Yet for all his service, Lydian’s children say he didn’t talk much about the war when he talked about his experience. This week, Mike Lydian accepted six medals on his father’s behalf, five-and-a-half months after Charles Lydian passed away at age 92.
