LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas veteran of the Vietnam War is scheduled to receive a Purple Heart for wounds he received during the Tet offensive in 1968.

Army officials will present the medal on Friday to 65-year-old Danny Taylor of Kansas City, Kan. The ceremony will be held at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Leavenworth.

Taylor was a specialist in the 86th Maintenance Battalion when his unit came under fire on Jan. 31, 1968. He was wounded in the arm, leg and back.

Taylor was discharged from the Army in April 1968 and continued to serve in the Kansas National Guard until the 1970s.
