Purple Heart among duplicate medals presented to a War Hero's daughter

Logan Daily

LOGAN — Some choose a life in the military to protect their country as the late George W. Davis did after joining the U.S. Army only three days after Pearl Harbor in 1941. Davis earned a series of medals, including a Purple Heart that not even his family knew about.

Tuesday, those medals were presented in his memory to his eldest daughter, Donna Davis Anderson. Chadd Smith, a representative with U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s office, presented the medals to Anderson at the Veterans office in Lancaster.

“I think today means a lot to the family of George Davis and his service means a lot to all of us Americans,” said Smith after he welcomed those in attendance.

“I feel like my dad was a hero and I never knew it,” commented Anderson. “This is amazing with never knowing about what he did.”
