World War II stopped it but Sunday September 1st, 2013 Texas A&M fixed it.

At a moving ceremony at the Lutheran church in old town Katy, TX, WWII Veteran and VFW Post 9182 Museum Executive Chairman Norris Miertschin was surprised with two things on that Sunday morning.

One, unbeknownst to him, a large gathering of his friends and colleagues from VFW Post 9182 came to  the church to witness him receiving the VFW Post 9182 Commanders Medal, for his efforts, enthusiasm, dedication and all the hard work he has put in the Katy Veterans Memorial Museum since 1996.

The second, was that were two Cadets  from the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets who were there to present him with something he should have received almost 70 years ago. In 1944, WWII was still raging around the globe, the United States itself was locked in heated battles around the world. As in many countries, the U.S. was having a tough time as well, things like flour, sugar, gasoline, leather, metal and other items were rationed or not available at all.

Cadet Kyle Hansen along with fellow Cadet Alex Parker brought with them two things, one was a  letter from the Commandant thanking Norris for his service and also congratulating Norris on his accomplishments during WWII and the other was a set of Senior boots. You see,  Norris was a member of the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets when WWII started. Because of the rationing of leather, Norris’s class never received their Senior boots from Texas A&M. The boots he received today were highly polished, and the boots have his name stamped inside along with his class date of 1944.

When asked about his awards, his comment was, “I’m speechless, I can’t believe this.”

Also, in attendance was a member of the Katy City Council; Bill Lawton, Norris’s son and daughter-in-law, and VFW State JAG Ken Burton.
