It was big day and a big honor for two veterans in Roscommon County.

They were thanked for their service to the country with the medals they’ve earned.

Wilson was stationed in Antarctica with the U.S. Navy.

Both say the gesture meant the world.

"I feel it’s been appreciated and it really makes me fell grateful for something like this," Kanachki said.

Wilson received the National Defense Service Medal among others.

Kanachki earned the Korean Service Defense Medal and others as well.
