While in Northern Colorado, I had the pleasure of presenting Ret. Senior Chief Petty Officer Bill Dudley, a U.S. Navy World War II Veteran, with ten military medals and decorations minted to honor his service.
Bill, who is 91-years-old, risked his life to serve our country. He lives outside of Eaton in Weld County with his wife Karla. He has three children, and is proud of his grandson who serves in the Navy.
He recently reached out to me and asked if I could assist him in obtaining these medals that he never requested after his service.
It was an honor to help. It's Coloradans like Bill who make me proud to serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
