UP: To lifelong Marietta resident and World War II veteran Randall Hunter for receiving the Legion of Honor medal-France's highest distinction for extraordinary contributions to that country. The 88-year-old Hunter also received two Bronze Stars during the war. Hunter was recognized by the French government for his action in the Battle of the Colmar Pocket in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. The casualty rate in this action was high for both American forces and the French. It was the last action of the war fought on French soil.
