charlestown@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - For some Vietnam War veterans, the priority was seeing the conflict come to an end instead of worrying about what kind of service medals they might be entitled to, said U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito. But for Vietnam War veteran Robert C. Grace Sr., his medals were a treasure. "He was always dusting them, cleaning them," said his wife, Dorothy M. Grace of Martinsburg. After some of Grace's medals were stolen from the couple's home, Dorothy M. Grace went to Capito for help in replacing them.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. -- It's the time of year when officials start looking for the right kind of high school students to go into the nation's military academies. The schooling at the academies is rigorous and getting accepted is tricky, officials said Sunday at Hedgesville High School during an academy day hosted by U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va. To have the best chance at landing a spot at one of the academies, military officials told local high school students to challenge themselves throughout high school, take difficult classes and get good grades.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Downtown business leaders in Martinsburg were upbeat Monday about the economic health of the community's historic commerce district, despite less than tourist-friendly gas prices and unsettled financial times on Wall Street. Tuscan Sun owner Laura Gassler said she saw fewer people at her gourmet food and wine shop from the Washington, D.C., area when gas prices were high this summer. But she also noticed a lot more "local traffic," including a number of relatively new residents of the area who said they never visited the downtown area.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Joseph R. Priestley thought he might have earned a medal for his military service in the Vietnam War, and made an inquiry with U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito's office several weeks ago. The 78-year-old retired U.S. Navy lieutenant colonel was correct. But he didn't expect John Reisenweber, Capito's Martinsburg office representative, to arrive at his Martinsburg home with a brown envelope containing 13 more. "I didn't know I was eligible for some of them," said Priestley, who enlisted Oct. 5, 1945.

laurae@herald-mail.com BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - Countering recent criticism of President Bush's Iraq war strategy, U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito on Saturday said the United States needs to stay the course to ensure peace. Echoing Bush, whose West Virginia re-election campaign she's chairing, the Second District congresswoman said stability in the region is vital to U.S. security. Capito spent four days with the troops about six weeks ago. "One thing that really struck me is the absolute power and strength of our military," she said in a speech to the Morgan County Republican Club.
