World War II U.S. Army veteran Bob Reinbrecht, Tama, is about to receive a medal for his service, some 59 years after the end of the war.

On Tuesday, Feb. 25, the Reinig-Friedrich Post 72 Toledo American Legion Color Guard will present a Prisoner of War medal to Reinbrecht which he never received.

The public is invited to the ceremony at the Legion Hall, 109 N. Main at 2 p.m.

Reinbrecht was captured and held in a German POW?camp where his weight dropped from 150 lbs. to 90 lbs during his captivity.
