Ceremony presents Purple Heart, lost dog tag to Vietnam veteran’s wife

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis woman now has her late husband’s dog tag from the time he served in the Vietnam War.

One of the tags was lost when he was injured in battle.

A local Vietnamese woman found Donnie Prine’s tag and gave it to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.

Prine died in 2013 but he was never given a Purple Heart for his service.

On Tuesday, Gov. Eric Holcomb presented Prine’s wife and family with the dog tag and the Purple Heart in a special ceremony at the Statehouse.
