A World War II veteran was finally awarded medals for his service—64 years after his duty. In a ceremony in Brooklyn, Pasquale "Pat" Caroselli was presented with six medals—"A European-African-Middle Eastern Service medal with six Bronze stars. A Good Conduct medal. An American Campaign medal. A World War II Victory medal. An Honorable Service lapel button."—and Rep. Anthony Weiner did the honors. Caroselli, who had been a machinist during the war, explained that he didn't collect the medals in 1945 because he was in a rush to get home; when he tried to apply many years later, it turned out a fire destroyed his records. His family was over the moon; his son said, "I'm really thrilled, especially on Memorial Day, to see him receive his medals, which he earned over six decades ago, it's just fantastic."
