Wednesday’s Bright Spot shines on a decorated World War II veteran celebrating a milestone.

Paul Cardinale fought in the Battle of the Bulge, was awarded two bronze stars, and was honored at the Friendly Home for his 100th birthday.

The longtime Gates resident received a certificate of recognition from the Town of Gates and the CEO of the Veterans Outreach Center also paid tribute to Cardinale’s outstanding service.

After retiring from the military, Cardinale worked as an electrical technician for General Railway Signal for more than 40 years.
