Minnesota Vietnam War Vet Honored 45 Years Later

Nearly a year after his death, a local Vietnam veteran is being honored for how he lived.

Senator Amy Klobuchar presented a Purple Heart to the family of Stephen Dufeck. He survived an enemy rocket and mortar attack in Vietnam 45 years ago.

He never got a Purple Heart because of a technical error, until Sunday. He died in December.

His family says they were touched to see him recognized.
