At long last ...

... ROCHESTER — After surviving kamikaze pilots and cancer, a World War II veteran was especially proud to be able to wear his medals at long last.

On Friday, U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH) presented Thomas Nugent, 93, of Dover, with the medals and honors he never received following his discharge from the U.S. Navy 67 years ago.

He received the Navy Good Conduct Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, a discharge button and an honorable service lapel button — which is also known as the "ruptured duck."
