Detectives Replace Marine Vet’s Stolen Military Medals

A Vietnam War veteran’s military medals were stolen in a home burglary in 2019, but detectives on his case replaced them for him.

When Thomas Faleskie’s house was broken into, he and his wife lost many valuables, but the military service medals were especially important to him. So Detective Frank Corona, who worked on the case and also served in the Marines, and his supervisor – also a Marine – worked to get them replaced by a company in South Carolina.

Faleskie says he was in a state of shock because he never expected it, but says he’s “very happy.”
