Fight for Kentucky World War II hero to get Medal of Honor goes on 16 years after his death

The campaign to have Kentucky-born Army 1st Lt. Garlin Murl Conner awarded the Medal of Honor continues despite a setback earlier this year. Conner earned four Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars, seven Purple Hearts and the Distinguished Service Cross for his actions during 28 straight months of combat in World War II. But the Clinton County native never received the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military distinction, given by Congress for risk of life in combat beyond the call of duty.
