WWII veterans receive Legion of Honor in San Diego


On Friday, September 14 consul Gen. Axel Cruau bestowed the highest honor with which France honors those who fought for freedom: the legion of honor ; to Master Sergeant John Grana and Private First Class John D’Agostino, Jr.

In a moving ceremony he reminded that “the vicious attacks that happened just a few days ago in Benghazi remind us that in this often dangerous world, the United States and France share a common responsibility to keep on being at the forefront of the fight against the evils of today, especially terrorism, tyranny and oppression, and that we have to help and support democratic forces wherever they are.”
