Aaron Narvol, a World War II veteran, received his Purple Heart Award nearly 70 years after being wounded by enemy fire in the spring of 1942 by Brig. Gen. Bud R. Jameson Jr., commander of the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command. After decades of work on his own, the office of Sen. Robert Casey, Jr., was able to locate and process the proper award paperwork. Narvol served as an engineer sergeant in the Pacific Theater and received the Silver Star for his actions of valor during the conflict that day.
