World War II veterans dedicate new war memorial

Red Wing resident Alex Huppert was injured during combat in Germany eight days before World War II ended. Huppert received a concussion and a flight to a hospital in France. Later he was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.

"I wasn't a hero," Huppert said, "I did what I had to do."

Huppert said when he returned from the war it took him a

while to adjust and he didn't receive the response from civilians

that he had expected he would.
