Susan talks with Dean Jeffers and his daughter Kathryn Jeffers. Today in Plover, Wisconsin, Mr. Jeffers will receive a Silver Star for his heroic service during World War II. Mr. Jeffers earned the medal during a mission in 1943, but a mix up in the government bureaucracy caused the delay in his being awarded the medal.
