Two weeks before Christmas, Gordon Bright received a present that was 48 years in arriving – medals he had earned for service in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War.
“I got to thinking what medals I might be eligible to receive after I had talked to several guys that I served with,” said Bright, a 68-year-old LaRue County native who entered service in 1966.
“I served for three years, eight months, and seven days,” he recalled from his home off Highway 357 about five miles from Hodgenville.
