This Memorial Day weekend many of us will stop and remember those who serve or have served our country, especially our own family members. 

One Sandy Springs man always wanted to know the story of his grandfather's service but he died before he was old enough to ask. 

That, however, didn't stop him from getting to know him and getting his grandfather the medals he'd earned decades after his death.  

Click here to see the video Benedict Esposito recorded of himself getting a look at the medal his grandfather earned for the first time.

If you would like to see if your loved one qualified for medals they did not receive or if you would like to replace lost medals you can do so through the National Archives.
