Louisiana Veterans Receive France’s Highest Honor

Eight World War II veterans from Louisiana will receive the French government’s highest medal, as knights of the Legion of Honour.
The medals will be presented by Consul Jean-Claude Brunet to Frank J. Peragine, Al F. Goudeau, and Ervin Aden, all of New Orleans, Albert L. Lasseigne, of Houma, Joseph C. Latiolais, of Breaux Bridge, Anderson B. Wilson, of Slidell, and John T. Remel, of Gonzales.
Joseph Reich, of Covington died after his medal was struck. The honor is generally not given posthumously.  Spokeswoman Rachel Haney said, “Because the medal was made while he was alive they’re going to give it to his family.”
