95-Year-Old North Texas WWII Vet Still Fighting For His Benefits


NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A World War II veteran and Purple Heart recipient who lives in North Texas, turned to his family, a colonel, a Congressman and now the CBS 11 I-Team.

For 19 months, Ed Malouf, has tried to get the benefits he earned while serving in two branches of the U.S. military and in two world wars.

Pete Malouf, Ed’s son, who is one of nine attorneys in their family, said he and the others have spent the last year and a half trying to get him the financial benefits awarded to all veterans who serve, go to war and get an honorable discharge.

“I just feel sorry for the veterans who don’t have the resources Dad has in his children and just would never be able to do what we’re doing,” said Pete Malouf.
