Hard work eventually pays off…

Whenever I hear about or see a member of the military,  I automatically have respect for him or her. Sacrificing your life for your own country is such a brave thing to do. In Muncie, Indiana Junior Howell received his purple heart medal on Wednesday, exactly 72 years after he was wounded in combat during WWII. I think that this is such an honor for this 91 year-old war veteran. 100 people watched Howell receive his purple heart and I am sure that he now believes that his hard work has finally paid off.
