More Recognition For Local Veterans

Some more of Wagga's military heroes were honoured yesterday, with another names added to the Military Roll of Honour at the Victory Memorial Gardens.

They included servicemen and women recognised for their service in peace-keeping missions, as well as in Somalia, the Gulf War, East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Wagga veteran Bert Adams was also awarded a special honour, presented with the French National Order of the Legion of Honour.

Riverina MP Michael McCormack presented Mr Adams with the medal, saying it is the French equivalent of the Victoria Cross.
