Entry Description
STATEHOUSE – State Representative Dave Ober (R-Albion) presented John T. DeBrular with a Sagamore of the Wabash award, the most prestigious award given by the Office of Governor Mike Pence.

Rep. Ober presented the award to DeBrular Friday evening at a private ceremony with elected officials and other guests. 

“Tom deserves the highest honor Indiana has to offer for his service to our nation,” Rep. Ober said. “I couldn’t be more pleased to give this award to a man who has contributed so much to our country, our community and our rich Hoosier heritage.”

DeBrular grew up in Cromwell, Ind. with four older brothers who all were all in the Army and Air Force. He graduated from the Masonic Home’s high school in 1943 and then joined the Navy in the Seabee Construction Battalion. He spent more than a year rebuilding Pearl Harbor after the bombing and then went to Iwo Jima where he spent the remainder of World War II. He then returned home, started a new career with Keidaish Vending Co. and married his wife Geraldine in 1948. 

“I admire Tom for his continual positive outlook on life even in the face of adversity,” Rep. Ober said. “This award symbolizes the positive impact he has made on all of those around him. I am honored to have the opportunity to present Tom with a Sagamore on behalf of the governor’s office and hope it goes a long way toward showing our gratitude for his service.”


Rep. David Ober represents all of Noble County and portions of Allen, Elkhart, LaGrange and Whitley counties.
