Braley to present medals to WWII veteran


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.
