Quite a collection of medals awarded to a World War Two veteran have been discovered at a storage facility in Louisville. The search is on to find the owner or his family.

The medals were left behind in a storage unit. The collection belongs to a decorated war hero. It includes Bronze Stars, Silver Stars and Purple Hearts. They were awarded to a man named Anthony Grunder.

"It looks like he spent the whole time in World War Two. He started out at one campaign in Europe and then finished up in Asia and he was in the Army with the 101st Airborne or Third Ranger Battalion," said David Kalbaugh, who made the discovery.

"Our first reaction was to find out who they belong to and try to get them back to the rightful owner, at least to the family of this gentleman," said Stephanie Kalbaugh, property manager.

The couple has looked through records and searched online, but so far they've had no luck. They've put the medals on display, hoping someone in the Louisville area may know their owner.
