The Military Order of the Purple Heart

Patriots:  It is with great sadness that we must report another part of the story for which we were so pleased just one week ago, the award of the Purple Heart medal to Patriot Roman “Ray” Ciesinski, a World War II veteran and prisoner of war.  Region Commander Pat Little, NSO Cheryl Yard had made it possible for Ciesinski to receive two Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star Medal, some 65 years after his discharge from the US Army.



  Unfortunately, Ray Ciesinski died this past Friday, only 5 days after receiving his decorations.  Thanks to Pat Little and Cheryl Yard, he at least received the recognition he so rightly deserved for his service and sacrifice before his final passage.  Here is a link to his obituary:




And, in case you missed it, here is the link to the original medal presentation video:
