Veteran’s Stolen Service Medals Returned
HAZLETON -- This is a special Veterans Day for Gerald Brekke. Something so dear to him has finally been returned. "I was just proud to get these medals, and I was proud to serve in the military," Brekke said. Brekke served in the Navy for 21 years. During that time, he earned multiple service medals. But, in 2003 those medals were stolen from him at an estate sale for his son that had just passed away.
