President Trump will award Vietnam combat vet James C. McCloughan of South Haven the Medal of Honor July 31, 2017.
U.S. Represenative Fred Upton, at the recent announcement, said, "Then-Private First Class James McCloughan is an American hero – there is no doubt about that. During close-combat, when his fellow soldiers were in dire need, PFC McCloughan stepped up. His selfless actions saved lives."
McCloughan was recommended for the Medal of Honor in 2016 but there was a problem since it needs to be awarded within five years of the recipient's heroic actions. Congress waived the time limit for McCloughan so now Trump will give him the medal at a White House ceremony. See more at the South Haven Tribune.
