Purple Heart Reunited
This November, the United States Army reunited the Purple Heart medal and certificate with the family of Tech. 5th Grade Robert Mathis at the Holocaust Memorial Center. Lt. Col. Matthew Yandura was stationed at the Jerusalem Consulate and discovered Robert Mathis’ Purple Heart certificate in a consignment shop. After months of research, Cadet Jay Choi, a senior in the Loyola Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program, located Mathis’ family. Watch this moving video of the ceremony, which includes a Color Guard conducted by the Jewish War Veterans.
