Frank Moore to receive Honor from the French government

Recently Frank Moore received a letter from the French Ambassador in Washington D.C. advising him that on September 16, 2011 by decree of President Sarkozy, Frank had been appointed a "Chevalier" of the Legion of Honor.

This award testifies to President Sarkozy's high esteem for Frank's merits and accomplishments. In particular, it is a sign of France's infinite gratitude and appreciation for his personal and precious contribution to the Unted States' decisive role in the liberation of France during World War II.

The Legion of Honor was created by Napoleon in 1802 to acknowledge services rendered to France by persons of great merit.

The ceremony will be held on at 4:00 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on November 9, 2011. The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
