JENNINGS TWP. — It took 69 years for Melvin Kloeppel of rural Delphos to receive the Purple Heart which he earned back in World War II, while serving in Germany.

Melvin was burned on his neck when the hot spent shell from his gun flew back at him and lodged inside his shirt. It was Easter Sunday in 1945 when he received this injury. The Purple Heart arrived two weeks ago after his daughter, Lois, searched the Internet to locate the address of the proper authorities, and then sent a letter describing the incident in which her father was injured.
