Medal Of Honor Sought For Megellas

Congressman Glenn Grothman and Senator Ron Johnson have introduced legislation seeking a Medal of Honor for Fond du Lac native and World War II hero Lt. Colonel James “Maggie” Megellas. The Medal of Honor is the United States’ highest military honor and would be awarded for the courage Megallas displayed during the Battle of the Bulge. Last year the Fond du Lac Post Office and a City park were named after Megellas. The American Legion Post is also named in his honor.
