This 30 minute presentation recounts the story of William J. Crawford. Bill, a Colorado native, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for action during WWII. Bill’s MOH was awarded “posthumously” to his father in 1943 when Crawford was believed “killed in action”. He survived the war, however, and forty-one years later, President Reagan presented the medal to Bill in person. Find out how this came to be! Told by Bill, in his own words, with action footage. A gripping and inspiring story!
