Tullahoma (TN) – A Tullahoma man recognized as one of the most decorated war veterans in the United States is now without a home, working to rebuild his life.

Thomas Gwynn, 94, is currently living in a hotel room after a fire tore through his home last week. He was inside at the time and was able to escape with only a few bumps and bruises.

Gwynn watched as his home of 44 years on E. Ragan Street burned.
