Rep. Maxine Waters Presents 92-Year-Old WWII Veteran With Long-Overdue Awards During High School Homecoming Game in Westmont

Navy veteran Willie Blackmon, 92, was honored with six awards — including three medals and one ribbon — that he earned for his service during World War II but never received during a halftime ceremony at George Washington Preparatory High School's homecoming game Friday. Congresswoman Maxine Waters was on hand him to present him with the awards, which her office helped secure.
