Herman Moll received a Purple Heart after being wounded in the Battle of Leyte Gulf in the Phillippines.

Molls says he remembers the moment he learned the war was over.

“I got out there, I was working my shift the day that the war ended. It came up on my screen as I was working.  I saw it picked up the phone and called my buddies and said the war’s over, we’re going home,” he said.
