Kentuckiana's Greatest Generation - Herman Burks

Herman is at Stone Creek Lodge Retirement Facility.

He was in Saipan and received many medals, including the Purple Heart and Silver Star, but believes he should have received the Congressional Medal of Honor as well.

You have to be nominated by someone for that and all the others that were in that situation were killed so there was no one left to nominate him.
