The Dana & Parks Podcast
Thursday, March 7th
PFC Nicolas Gojmerac, of Kansas City, Kansas, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his act of bravery to save a buddy during a battle on a South Pacific island in 1943. 

The US Marine was badly wounded and was soon listed as Missing in Action. A year later he was presumed dead.

His remains were never recovered.  At least... that's what the military and his family thought for seven decades.
