Nearly 70 years after his service in World War II and Korea, the family of master sergeant Guy Woodhouse finally received the 13 decorations and service medals the Hoosier hero had earned.

Woodhouse died in 1989, taking with him the many stories that had earned him a bronze and silver star, the four injuries getting him a purple heart, and the time he'd spent as a German POW.

"My dad wouldn't want all this recognition. He was a very humble man. He never talked about it to me" said his daughter Valerie Johnston

And now, 70 years later, it's official, Woodhouse is one of indiana's most highly decorated war heroes.

Not only did Woodhouse enlist in both World War II and Korea, he served in the National Guard not once, but twice.
