Congressman secures five medals for WWII veteran Neil Korn

Congressman Derrick Van Orden announced Tuesday five military medals will be awarded to 102-year-old Neil Korn of Chippewa Falls.

Korn is a retired U.S. Army private first class who served from Jan. 8, 1943, to Dec. 15, 1944.

“We can never fully thank veterans for their service to our country, but we absolutely should ensure they receive the recognition they deserve for their sacrifices. I look forward to presenting this American hero with the medals he earned through his honorable service to our nation,” Van Orden said.

Korn completed battles and campaigns in Normandy, France, northern France and Rhineland, Germany.

“As a retired U.S. Navy SEAL, it is an absolute honor to secure these medals for Mr. Neil Korn and recognize his commitment to fighting for peace and freedom during World War II,” Van Orden said.
