WWII veteran pleads for return of stolen medals

VISTA, Calif. – An 88-year-old World War II veteran said eight of his medals of honor were stolen from his Vista home.

Clyde Kellogg, who was wounded storming the beaches of Guadalcanal , said his war medals were taken from his wall on Friday.

Stolen War MedalsThe medals included a Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Presidential Unit Citation, World War II victory medal, three riflery medals and a good-conduct medal.

Retired 1st Sgt. Kellogg pleaded Tuesday for the person who burglarized his home to return the war medals.

“They don’t have any financial value what so ever,” said Kellogg. “It’s devastating to have lost something I’ve treasured for over 65 years.”
