Rock Island City Leaders are trying to get a local Vietnam veteran's silver star upgraded to a medal of honor.
"It was a different kind of war. It darn near tore our country apart, but we went off and we served nobly and we served most of all for our country without a doubt for each other," said the former Captain Bill Albracht was given a standing ovation at the Rock Island City Council meeting, Monday night.
Leaders voted to urge Congress, the Army, and the Department of Defense, to review Albracht's heroic actions at Firebase Kate.
