CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

On Tuesday, Rep. Bruce Braley will address the Iowa Wind Energy Conference in Des Moines and tour the new training facility of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, Local #3, in Marshalltown.

Also, Braley will travel to Cedar Falls to present eight military service medals including the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star to Henry Andrew Johnson, a World War II Army veteran who was awarded the medals, but never received them after he was wounded in battle. Johnson served as a telephone switchboard operator in the Army in Italy during the war.
