On March 18, 1944, Sgt. Richard Faulkner's B-17 was shot down over France. He was the only member of the crew to survive. The Germans hunted him but he was secreted out of the country by the French underground. When Faulkner, who now lives in Syracuse, N.Y., was offered the Purple Heart for being wounded in action, he turned the medal down "because they all got killed and I didn't," he says today. About a year ago, he changed his mind because he wants the medal as a keepsake for his grandchildren. On Saturday, he was awarded the Purple Heart for the wounds he sustained in 1944.
