Congressman Keating to Replace Stolen Purple Heart

Congressman Bill Keating is hoping to restore some of what a New Bedford family lost last week.

Thieves recently broke into the home of the Ford family, and stole several military medals, including the Purple Heart, that had been posthumously awarded to Marine Lance Corporal Michael Ford.

Congressman Keating has secured a replacement Purple Heart for the Ford family, and will present it to them Friday morning at his Pleasant Street office.

Ford was killed in Iraq in 2006 when his tank ran over an improvised explosive device.
