Reading EJ Montini’s column today was a rare pleasant surprise. In today’s Republic, he wrote about a class of individuals who have almost all left us. Frank Vegh won a Silver Star in WWII but kept quiet about – even to his wife. Three years ago he passed away. It wasn’t until someone from the VA informed his wife, Elaine about Frank’s heroism and decoration.
Today, we simply cannot forget men like Frank Vegh, our WWII veterans and heroes who sacrificed more than we can imagine in the name of courage, freedom, liberty, humility and bringing peace. Thanks EJ for writing and reminding us about heroes like Frank Vegh who gave so much and asked for nothing in return.
