Udall presents five medals to vet

-A A +A

It’s been more than six decades, but New Mexico veteran Wilson Halona is being recognized for his service during World War II.
Halona, a native of Tohatchi, received five military medals Tuesday from U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, during a ceremony at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque.
More than 50 members of Halona’s family watched as he was presented with the World War II Victory Medal, the Silver Service Star and the other medals.
Halona’s battalion defeated German bunkers at Utah Beach in 1944 and guarded Adolf Hitler’s top generals in Stuttgart. Halona personally guarded one of the highest-ranking generals before returning to Nuremberg to celebrate the end of the war.
Halona’s family contacted Udall’s office in October to verify his medal eligibility.
