World War Two Veteran Honored
Several replacement service medals have been presented to Warren County, Kentucky military veteran Karl Hopper. He was a radar operator in World War Two and served at the Battle of the Bulge. Hopper says he's humbled to receive the medals, and stresses that people from all walks of life contributed to the war effort in the 1940s.
Congressman Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green presented the medals to Mr. Hopper during a recognition ceremony in the Warren County Court House. Hopper, who says he thanks God for the positive things that have happened in his life, received five medals, including the World War Two Victory Medal.
