On Monday, June 16, 2008, Commander Roy Kellum visited the Reserve (Southeast Louisiana) War
Veterans Home. The purpose of this trip was to obtain information on a resident, Mr. George Louis Lezu who was wounded
in Korea (Aug. 1951) by a gun shot wound and never received his "Purple Heart" medal and certificate. The necessary contacts
will be made in St. Louis, MO to obtain Patriot Lezu's "Purple Heart". Commander Kellum also presented Mr. Lezu with
a Purple Heart coin in recognition of his service and sacrifice.
