MOH recipients (John Terhune/Journal & Courier)
“Seven of the 85 surviving recipients of the Medal of Honor visited Tippecanoe County to dedicate the new Medal of Honor Bridge on County Road 500 East. It is the only bridge in the United States named for all Medal of Honor recipients.
The honorees were Sammy L. Davis, Harold Fritz, Don Jenkins, Ronald Rosser, Kenneth Stumpf, Leo Thorsness and Hershel “Woody” Williams.
The group made a dramatic entrance for a series of dedication and ribbon-cutting events, cheered at every stop on a day designed to hail them as heroes.
They flew in a UH-1 Huey helicopter to the Faith Baptist Church campus for a formal bridge dedication ceremony.” Read more and view slideshow at jconline.com 7 Medal of Honor recipients star attractions
