CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH) — A World War II Veteran from Cheshire was honored today with Medals of Distinction.
Irvin Daubert is a 95-year-old veteran of the Army Air Forces. He was a Staff sergeant and Armour gunner on a B-24 bomber that flew missions over Europe during World War II. In his 35 missions, no one was hurt.
Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty presented him with a “Flying Cross” for heroism.
“To all of us who served in service, you all did the same thing for your country. They called on us at a time when country needed our help and we signed up, and defended our country,” said Daubert.
Daubert is the last living member of his B-24 crew.
