Only on NBC5, a local World War II Veteran is being honored for his achievements in the Marine Corps. Delbert Littrell is a World War II Veteran. He’ll be 96 years-old this month. Littrell’s family says the Marine Corps cares a lot about its history and honoring the soldiers before them. When retired Marine, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Turley saw Littrell’s military history, he wondered why Littrell never got those stripes. “There’s guys still getting Purple Hearts and things from World War II because they got lost in the paperwork,” says Littrell.
