The award was presented at Ortonville's VFW Clubrooms. Also honored with the same medal from this area was Alvin "Shorty" Jorgenson of Bellingham, featured elsewhere this issue. The Jubilee of Liberty Medal was authorized by the Regional Council of Normandy to pay tribute to the Men and Women who fought in Normandy to restore freedom to the French peo- ple. Originally these Medals were minted by the Monnaie de Paris and were presented only to those veterans who went back to Normandy for the 50th Anniversary of the D-Day land- ings.

He has requested that the Medal be pre- sented in person and at an appropriate ceremony. The Jubilee of Liberty Medal rep- resents Normandy. On the front, "'OVERLORD 6 Juin 1944"' is inscribed on the upper part. with the flags of the Allied Countries and the names of the landing beaches on the face of the Medal.
