  • Verdie Bowen Sr., director of veterans affairs for the state of Alaska, speaks after WWII veteran Arthur W. Owens is awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart 68 years after his heroic actions while fighting near Ludwigshafen, Germany. On March 23, 1945, Owens' tank was hit by a shell from an anti-tank gun.  After evacuating the vehicle, he returned twice under heavy enemy fire - and despite his wounds - to rescue injured comrades. After a review of his records, Secretary of the Army John McHugh recently signed orders to recognize Owens. Brig. Gen. Mike Bridges, commander of the Alaska Army National Guard, presented the medals during a ceremony at the Alaska National Guard headquarters on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013.
