Siouxlander presented medals from service years ago

Military medals are not just given, they are earned. One Siouxland man is getting back what is rightfully his.

Adam Menin was presented military medals he earned while serving our country from 1999 to 2006.

Menin's medals had gone missing, so his mother Rhonda called Representative King's office for an assist in replacing what Adam had lost.

Menin said, "It just means that the dream of what I've achieved is still alive despite all the adversity that I've had earning them, it's a reminder of once you've earned them you get them forever. "

Representative King, who was on hand to present the medals, said these medals will mean a great deal to not only Adam but his family legacy as well.

"It says something from all of us to him, we're grateful for his service, but also it says something each seeding generation. Those medals will be in the family forever, somebody will have them three or four generations from now and they'll want to know about his service," said King.

In total Menin received 11 medals, among those were: the National Defense Service Medal, a Combat Action Badge, and the Humanitarian Service Medal.
