A medal earned on Luzon

2/10/2015. The  first phase of combat on Luzon for the 43rd Infantry Division was coming to an end this date in 1945. More was to come. Wilber had just received word that he had been awarded a second Silver Star. As he put it on Feb. 12, ” Pop got decorated again. This time it was a Silver Star based on an Infantry recommendation. I’m very proud of it but my inner conscience tells me I didn’t really earn it.”

  1. Hale, this is a very classy website. It’s bound to attract much attention, and I wish you well with it.

    I love the name “Wilber’s War.” You are so lucky to have a dad with a name that begins with “W”!
