Medals finally make it to Ladd
LADD – Congressman Adam Kinzinger made a quick stop in Ladd Friday afternoon to present veteran LeRoy C. Padgett with four medals he earned but never received.
The presentation took place at the American Legion in Ladd, surrounded by Padgett’s family members, Ladd village officials and legion officers, including the 16th District American Legion commander.
Kinzinger read a brief background on Padgett, who entered the Armed Forces in 1951. Padgett completed his basic training in Kentucky and then his advanced training. After training, he was deployed to Japan and served on an anti-aircraft artillery battalion.
