Bedford, VA - A special ceremony at the D-Day Memorial Friday before the bigger event honored World War II veteran Bob Sales.
Representative Bob Goodlatte read a letter to Sales that he presented to Congress. The letter recognized Sales for his accomplishments and everything that he survived during his service. It was from both the United States and France, something Goodlatte says is very rare.
To have another country honor a U.S. veteran for their service is something to be proud of, and Sales was very touched when he was presented with the letter. Goodlatte says it was an honor for him to give Sales the recognition.
