I absolutely love posting stories of WWII veterans who make the headlines in local newspapers. In this case, a high school friend posted a heartwarming story from a local CT news channel on facebook. Roy Rodrigues, 90 years old, received the purple heart for wounded received against an enemy while a member of the 8th Armored Division, attached to the 71st Infantry Division during WWII. The newsclip doesn’t really delve into the exact details, but the piece is moving and I thought it would make a nice addition to the site. Click the photo of Roy below to watch the video.
