It's estimated that 56.4 million people around the world lost their lives during the Second World War.

Thousands of heroes died in the span of a few short years, but many also survived, receiving medals for their heroic actions.

That being said, not everyone received a special honor for their service until decades later.  

Mark Paradise, a World War II veteran from central Pennsylvania, was formally given a Bronze Star and Combat Infantry Badge, 60 years after his heroic service.

Another American hero is getting the recognition he deserved 76 years ago for saving several lives aboard a burning Pearl Harbor ship.

The story of what he did is definitely one for the books.
