|MOH recipient Sgt. Homer L.Wise|
The previous story about Col. Millett’s stolen medals is not unusual.
Family members of Medal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Homer L. Wise of Stamford, CT are searching for all of his medals including the Medal of Honor, the Silver Star, two bronze stars, three purple hearts and ten other decorations.
Sgt. Wise died in 1974 and news reports published over the years in the Stamford (CT) Advocate revealed that the last known location of Sgt. Wise’s medals were in the collection of the renowned military medal collector Evans Kerrigan.
Mr. Kerrigan in one of the newspaper’s articles is quoted as saying he gave the medals to a Stamford veteran Edward Page for safe keeping. Mr. Page died in 1998. His widow has no recollection that her husband had Sgt. Wise’s medals.
Any information regarding the location of these medals would be greatly appreciated.
