NH Veterans News: Vets can explore their artistic side at the VA

U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., left, presented Korean War veteran Donald Medbery, center, with four service medals Tuesday at her Dover office: the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, and United Nations Korean Service Medal. He earned the medals while in the Air Force and Air Force Reserve from 1953 to 1960. He did not receive the medals while serving, and his records were lost in the National Personnel Records Center fire in 1973. At Shea-Porter's request, and with documents provided by Medbery, the NPRC authorized the shipment of the medals. Medbery's wife, Suzanne, is pictured at right. (Office of Congresswoman Shea-Porter)
