'Priceless' Purple Heart returned to Port Jeff family
A Port Jefferson man says he's extremely excited to have his father's Purple Heart and Silver Star medals returned to his family. Dave Skwiersky says his dad earned the medals fighting in World War II. He thought they were lost forever when the items in his father's Coram storage unit were recently auctioned off. The purchaser of the unit, who wanted to remain anonymous, returned the medals to Skwiersky today.
