The ceremony took place at the home of Eugene Lang along with his wife Enid (they have been happily married for 33 years), daughter Erica and son Matthews as Schumer presented the medal in person. Joining them were Lang's attorney Don Singer, his commanding officer Joe Carpenter, local VA veterans, as well as friends and family.
Gene actually received 4 medals this day. Purple Heart, Army Commendation Medal with "V" device, Vietnam Campaign ribbon with a Silver Star and Good conduct Medal.
Three Boys From Italy aka Gaudio's Italian Family in Yorktown Hts. provided two 6-foot long sandwiches, one American and one Italian, while another local store Turco's sent over a gift basket of fresh fruit. Less work for Enid to do.
