The family of a prominent Kentucky Marine now has his war medals.

Lieutenant Colonel Roy Owsley was the Marines' representative during the Japanese surrender on the U-S-S Missouri in 1945.

He was later Louisville City Manager, an aide to four Kentucky governors and Chairman of the Kentucky Authority for Educational Television.

On Thursday, Owsley's family received his Legion of Merit Medals, which had been stored in the state's unclaimed property vault.
