LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - Thirty-one years after his death, an Arkansas soldier was awarded five medals.
The family of First Sergeant George Tribell began looking into their history and found he had earned, but never received, some special recognitions. Friday, Gov. Mike Beebe joined members of the military to present the Bronze Star, Good Conduct Medal, American Defense Service Medal, Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal and World War II Victory Medal to Sgt. Tribell's Family.
