Fallen NY Marine's Medals Stolen During Break-in

Tuesday, 23 Dec 2014 10:51 AM

 Medals awarded to a U.S. Marine from upstate New York who died after being wounded in Afghanistan have been stolen from his widow's home in North Carolina.

The parents of Christopher Bordoni tell The Ithaca Journal (http://ithacajr.nl/1sTW5kG ) that the military decorations were among the items stolen from Jessica Bordoni's Wilmington, North Carolina, home during a break-in last Wednesday.

Bordoni was 21 when he died in early April 2012 from wounds sustained the previous January during combat in Afghanistan. He served in a unit based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

He's buried in his hometown of Ithaca, New York, where his parents, Tim Bordoni and Carol Bordoni Sprague, both live.

Wilmington police say his Purple Heart and Achievement Medal with Valor were stolen, along with Christmas presents, jewelry and clothes.
