Ill. World War II vet awarded Legion of Honor
CHICAGO – An 88-year-old suburban Chicago man said he was “tickled” to receive France’s highest honor for his service in World War II.
But James Butz of Schaumburg was humble about the award, saying during a ceremony in Chicago on Friday that thousands of other service members – American and French – did what he did.
“I’m not a war hero,” Butz said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “The heroes are the ones that didn’t come back.”
