Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Senator Stabenow recently presented U.S. Army World War II veteran Floyd Monhollen with his Bronze Star at a ceremony hosted by VFW Post 552 in Lincoln Park. Monhollen joined the war effort in 1944 and served in seven countries while deployed in the European Theater. “Floyd served on the front lines as an infantry rifleman in France during the harsh winter. He endured hardships and challenges most of us cannot imagine,” Senator Stabenow said. Monhollen’s family contacted Senator Stabenow’s office for help in getting his Bronze Star, which was conferred upon him and all others who received the Combat Infantry Badge during World War II.
