John Toth was hit by a mortar shell during the Korean War.

Toth says a lot of his records were either lost or misplaced and that's why he thinks it took this long to receive the honor.

He says that does not diminish the meaning of the award.

Also at the ceremony in Denver, 100 future soldiers took their oath of enlistment.
