In Wheaton Sunday, 94-year-old Chicagoan Frank Andrews was awarded six medals for his service in World War II.

Andrews fought and was wounded at both the D-Day Normandy landings and at the Battle of the Bulge.

He should have received the medals back then.

Andrews asked for them in 1984 and was told the Army didn't have the medals available.

He finally got them Sunday at the First Division Museum in Cantigny Park.
