Cape Coral Veteran Receives Purple Heart

This family and the people involved in verifying this man's service and experiences in World War II should be praised, too.  This is the kind of story to start your day on a good note.


After years of being denied due to record mishaps, Roy Kratt, one of Cape Coral’s first residents, finally received a Purple Heart on Wednesday for his service in World War II.
Roy Kratt was 17 on Oct. 15, 1942, when the USS Meredith was hit by Japanese bombs.
