It was some recognition a long time coming.

On Saturday Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly awarded numerous medals -- including a bronze star and purple heart -- to the family of World War II army veteran Donald Wesley Hooten, a New Carlisle native.

The recognition for Hooten was part of POW/MIA Recognition Day at VFW Post 9820 in South Bend.
