99-year-old WWII veteran receives medals 72 years after war
LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- June 18, 1943 was a pivotal day for Buford Johnson. That was the day the U.S. Army requested his services. Landing in Normandy, France, shortly after D-Day, Johnson hit the ground running, and driving half-tracks and supply trucks for Patton's 3rd Army. But that was a very long time ago. Nowadays, most folks don't think about World War II.
