HONOLULU — Jeff Morita, a retired U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class and a Department of the Army Civilian (39 years) has filed applications for 13 100th Battalion and 442nd Regimental Combat Team veterans to obtain the National Order of the legion of Honor, a prestigious medal conferred by the Government of France.
Any American who served in France during World War II for its liberation is eligible to apply for this award. The French Government’s processing time is approximately one year.
The Legion of Honor is the highest award France confers to foreign nationals. To qualify, a veteran must be living to apply.
Morita, as a public service, is pleased to advise or do the paperwork free of charge for any qualified 100th or 442nd veteran. His only request is that the recipient of the Legion of Honor advise him after the award was received.
