John Fuller, a Jaffrey man who earned the Silver Star during WWII, will now have a place in the Jaffrey Historical Society.

Framed with an American flag and a photo of Fuller, the Silver Star medal is one of two earned by town residents during the world wars. According to a 1961 Monadnock Ledger article accompanying the medal, Fuller was a Main Street resident and was given the award after evacuating and caring for fellow soldiers under fire in Tunisia in 1943 during WWII. The article also said that Fuller worked in the chopping department at W.W. Cross. He died in 1968.

Raymond “Jack” Sebastian, who lived on River Street, was given the Silver Star for valor in action in France during WWI.

The article and Fuller’s framed medal were donated to the society by Bett Chase, a Laconia resident, and her mother, Oliver Fuller Bourque. Chase is the daughter of Fuller and his ex-wife, Olive, who was recently profiled in the Ledger-Transcript after sharing memories of her uncle, William Henry Wilson, who fought in the Civil War.
