On Saturday, The Wyoming Tribune Eagle gave House GOP Conference Chair and Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) a “thumbs up” for her work this month securing military replacement medals for a Wyoming resident. You can read more here or below:
“UP to U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., for working quickly behind the scenes to obtain replacement medals for Marty Albright and her family. The medals are similar to the ones her father earned during his service in World War II, which were stolen recently from VFW Post 1881.
“Of course, they’re not the actual medals Harry L. Grover was presented for serving in Africa and Italy. But even as we hold out hope that the original medals will be returned, it’s heartwarming to see our congresswoman and her staff take notice of the situation and help in this way.”
Congresswoman Cheney’s office worked with the United State Army to secure the following medals after they were stolen in September from VFW Post 1881: Purple Heart, Bronze Star, WWII Victory Medal, American Defense Service Medal, European–African–Middle Eastern Campaign Medal and Good Conduct Medal.
If you or a family member needs help obtaining a military medal replacement, please reach out to Tammy Hooper located in the Cheyenne district office at Tammy.Hooper@mail.house.gov or at 307-772-2595.
