|In 2002, Calhouner Laymon Junior Godfrey, 78, who saw the battlefield's of western Europe in WWII, got his battlefield medals 57 years after the war.|
With muted voice and misty eyes, he simply said "Thank you."
Godfrey then said, "I do remember the cold feet, wet back and c-rations. I remember riding behind in an ammo truck and seeing the Sergeants arm, sticking from a truck window, being shot off by a 20mm.
There were times dust popped on my pant-legs from gunfire. I remember that well."
