Grothman Asks for Megellas to Receive Medal of Honor


Congressman Glenn Grothman has introduced legislation that would give a Fond du Lac native the United States’ highest military honor. The bill authorizes and requests President Trump to award James “Maggie” Megellas the Medal of Honor for the courage he showed during the Battle of the Bulge. “More than 70 years ago, Maggie displayed a heroism in the face of one of World War Two’s bloodiest battles that is deserving of our nation’s highest award.. He saved countless lives and stopped the advance of enemy troops without thought of his own life,” Grothman said. “I hope that my colleagues can come together in a bipartisan manner to recognize that Mr. Megellas is a true American hero who deserves to be awarded the Medal of Honor.”

Megellas is the most decorated solder from the 82nd Airborne Division – receiving the Distinguished Service Cross and the Silver Star. He currently lives in Colleyville, Texas.
