Veterans will gather to commemorate centennial of Vermonter's Medal of Honor

A tribute to Torpedoman Henry Breault is planned for Friday, March 15 at 9:30 a.m. (0930) to honor the 100th anniversary of this Vermont resident receiving the Medal of Honor.

Rep. Michael Morgan of Grand Isle-Chittenden District is initiating a Legislative resolution to honor Breault, the first submariner and only enlisted submariner to receive the Medal of Honor.

The date was chosen because the Vermont Legislature was in recess on March 8, the actual date in 1924 when the Medal of Honor was presented to Breault by President Calvin Coolidge.

All veterans - especially Navy veterans, to show their support of one of their own - are encouraged to attend the resolution reading at the Vermont State Capitol building in the House of Representatives chamber.
