LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Dozens of Kentuckiana Purple Heart recipients and World War II veterans were honored for their service on Wednesday.

It happened at the annual Military Officers Association of America's annual Veterans Day luncheon.  The group is dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense.

Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell was the keynote speaker.  He joked that the Purple Heart is the one medal that no one ever tried to earn.

McConnell says taking care of veterans is not a Republican or Democratic problem, but an American issue.
