Founder of Magic Wand Car Wash receives military medal

BRISTOL, VA — Bobby Griffin received the Korean War Veteran Medal during a ceremony held in Seoul, South Korea.

BRISTOL, VA — Bobby Griffin, founder of the Magic Wand Car Wash chain, recently received the Korean War Veteran Medal during a ceremony held in Seoul, South Korea, according to a report.

The story said Griffin not only served in the war, but also went on to foster children from South Korea.

“It was this unconditional caring that left me, not scarred from war, but rather enriched by the experience, and, oddly enough, better for it,” Griffin said in a prepared statement, according to the story. “It is very fulfilling to be able to transform the experience of war into something positive. That is often not the case.”

The ceremony included recorded comments from President George W. Bush and the Reverend Billy Graham.
