– Guests: Albert Morgan, Jr., Retired Army Veteran | Nearly 50 years late,  Albert Morgan, Jr., Army Veteran was finally able to pin on his Bronze Star he was awarded in 1970 for Vietnam War combat operations covering September 1 to November 1 of that year.  It was through the office of U.S. Senator John Boozman that the medal ceremony took place on Veteran’s Day in November 2019 at Chafee Crossing in Fort Smith.  Morgan was drafted at 19 and inducted into the Army in 1969. After months of training, he arrived in Vietnam and was involved in numerous enemy fire exchanges. It was just after a fiend of his was killed that he prayed to God to protect him and not let him get killed or lose any limbs.  He vowed to do whatever it took in order to get back home alive.  He was honorably discharged in 1971 and later became ill with diseases caused by Agent Orange. He is physically challenged with sarcoidosis of the liver, lungs, lymph system, joints, skin, and heart.  It was through a search for compensation that led him to receiving boxes of records, where he came across an official copy dated November 4, 1970 of the award of the Bronze Star medal. Morgan is now fully decorated with various medals, including the Bronze Star.  He still battles health ailments and the challenges on receiving compensation form Veteran Affairs Healthcare.
