MORE ON ORRIS COREY

Regarding Orris Corey, Colonel Craw's jeep driver. Earlier reports listed as being put in for a DSC and it looks like he received the Silver Star. Wow! Strange but true!!!! He was from Evart, Michigan. I wonder if Colonel Craw and Private Corey discussed life in northern Michigan while waiting to depart.
We do want to thank Mark Corey and his mother, Phyllis Corey for sharing so many photos and newpaper accounts of Orris W. Corey's life. Mark, Orris Corey's eldest son has been so helpful in sharing many moments in Orris's life in the Military and his heroic actions taken during World War II. A Silver Star recipient is something to be proud of as it speaks to the character of the individual. So thanks for helping us share those moments in history and what the Greatest Generation of Americans did to keep our country safe. We all are indebted to that generation.
