NH Marine, 80, to receive overdue medals
Edward Caron, a Manchester native who is described by his daughter Deborah Caron as a proud Marine, has spent most of his life in New Hampshire, where he raised five children with his wife of 55 years, Pauline, while working as a long-distance truck driver.
Deborah Caron said her father — who grew up on a farm in Manchester and now has five children, 16 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren — has been reticent to discuss his service during the war.
"Then we got a phone call saying that he was entitled to between 15 and 18 medals," Deborah said.
Ayotte spokesperson Liz Johnson said Ayotte will present Caron with his medals sometime in the next few weeks.
